We have arrived in Mexico! As soon as the plane landed,Captain Dino allowed us all to sit in the cockpit. That was so kind of him!

When we left the airport we took a taxi to the Galleria hotel in Mexico City. We exchanged our American dollars for Pesos then  took our suitcases up to our room and left the hotel in a taxi to visit the Mexican National Museum of Anthropology.

The National Museum of Anthropology in Chapultepec (Grasshopper) Park in Mexico City is one of the largest of its kind in the world.  This is a museum that is home to all kinds of items made by the people of Mexico a very, very,very,very,very long ago.Our guide and teacher, Mr.Marcos, helped us learn about the history and many cultures of Mexico.

One of the things I learned about was a game called Ullamaliztli .Players use their hips to push a ball of hard rubber through a stone hoop. 

The teams would face each other on the court. The goal was to get the ball through the stone hoop. This was extremely difficult, and so if it actually happened the game would be over!
