Some pictures of a newspaper tower that Renee built at home!
During the past week, I have been on a trip in Jamaica. I tried lots of exotic foods like papaya, ackee, Jamaican apple, yellow watermelon, and Jamaican jerk chicken. I conquered my fear of thrill rides when I went on 2 waterslides in the resort waterpark and really enjoyed them. I went snorkelling in the Caribbean Sea and saw hundreds of fish, mainly sergeant major fish, and 2 stingrays. I held a cute baby sea turtle in my hand and had lots of really cool-looking food in 5 of the restaurants in the resort. I did horse grooming and archery at the ranch near the resort. I went golfing for nine holes at a golf course near the resort and played a trivia game in which I learned a lot about Jamaica. I had a great vacation in Jamaica!
1. Jamaicans drive on the left side of the road while we Canadians drive on the right. Our bus driver said that the left side is the right side and the right side is suicide!
2.Jamaicans have the steering wheel of their car on the right side while we have ours on the left.
3. Irie means all good in Jamaica. Irie mon!
4. Jamaicans use litres and metres like us.
I am vacationing in Playa Mujeres, Mexico. My family and I have been here for 6 days and it is beautiful here. I guess I was scared at first because of all the stuff Trump said but people here are very nice and very welcoming.
I went to Coba and hiked up the largest temple in Mexico. Coba has been around from about 600-900AD and I climbed it to the top. It is the last temple you can climb because now the other ones are slowly breaking down. They made it so high because you can get closer to god.
We had lunch in a Mayan Village and hung out with the locals. Everyone is so nice. They made traditional meal of potatos, corn, scrambled egg with this Mexican spice Carassa and with the same spice they made a lemonade but not as sweet as our lemonade.
We also went zip lining through the forest and kayaked. We visited a sinkhole and swam in it. It was so cold!!!😬 the Sinkhole was called Cenote de Chimuch there was bats all on the top of the cave but our tour guide said they are fruit eaters so don’t need to be afraid. Still it freaked me out😧
Mexico is really beautiful and very hot so you have to pack a lot of sunscreen. Some people in our hotel here are looking like red lobsters. I had a great time here and the adventures were a lot of fun. I would come back anytime.
It’s that time of year again!
Please make sure to have a protractor for Monday’s math class.
