I have to admit, these past two weeks have been much more enjoyable than the previous one. It was much easier to deal with everything when we didn’t have excursions or extra lectures every day of the week. The excursion this weekend, however, was certainly a good time. Though the mining equipment was incredibly loud, it was cool to walk through the area, and certainly a nice reprieve from the temperatures outside. The convent was also quite interesting, especially the inside of the actual church. The amount of gold inside of it was very impressive. Unsurprisingly, my favorite part of the day was going to the beach. The water was much warmer than the lake and the weather was overall much nicer, and it was much easier to have fun than at the lake.
