The sand was felt warm on my toes and the air was as humid as a sauna. The ocean was as blue as the sky and the sand looked as white as snow. We didn’t spend much time on the beach before it got dark and we had to head back to our condo. I went to bed thinking about how excited I was to go back to the beach the next day. Maybe this place wouldn’t be so bad after all.
There so many to choose from, including, biking down a volcano, participating in a Luau, taking a snorkeling boat ride, and off-roading. Taking a bike ride down a volcano was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Even though I had to get up and leave at one in the morning it was worth it. I got to see the sunrise from 10,000 feet above sea level, and got to ride down the volcano. The sunrise was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
My first memory I am going to share with you is when we went to Catalina Island for a week. Sleeping in the cabins were one of the most fun parts of going to Catalina because we told each other jokes and talked about the day’s activities. Another awesome part about Catalina was what we called “Day Trip,” were we kayaked out to a secluded beach and spent the day there. The best thing we did before leaving Catalina was the “Big Swing.” Our classmates would pull us up into the air and
Whenever I go on family trips I am always amazed by the nature of the world around us. Last week, I went to Florida with my family and stayed at my grandparents’ apartment on the beach. It happened to be that every morning the sun rises right over the ocean. Being able to watch the sun rise over the ocean was an amazing experience. Again, all I could say was “מָה-רַבּוּ מַעֲשֶׂיךָ ה.”
Finding My Mermaid Magic It was a hot and sunny Friday afternoon in Aruba. There was a Surf for Breast Cancer event going on at the beach and I was asked to surf in it because i’m one of the top surfers in my division. The competition started at 3:30 so I got there early to clean my board and practice with my bestfriends, Venus and Malani. Venus was a short redhead with green eyes and she loved to take pictures on the beach and post them while Malani was more on the shy side.
When I was thirteen, approximately a year ago, my family took a vacation to Cancun. The trip was pretty cool. Cancun was warm, tropical, and most of all supplied endless amounts of food in the hotel. Like most vacations, people want to get the most they can do with their time there. For me, my last bit of fun would have been crashing into the waves, I had discovered, on the new beach in front of my hotel.
We quickly ran down to the beach, careful to not get in trouble. The beach was absolutely gorgeous. A happy feeling took over my body immediately. The next day was an amazing day for swimming.
The ocean looked like an enormous pool of wonder. It was exceptionally blue that day with a slight green undertone. The surface looked as though it was covered with millions of diamonds crashing with the waves and kissing the sand. I remember the sand in between my feet, like standing on a coarse cloud that I could just seep into. The water teasing my toes and running back into hiding.
It had palm trees, tiki sculptures, baby blue water, coconut trees, & sand as soft as a baby’s bottom! We couldn’t believe it , it was weird ! about 30 minutes ago we were running a 3.0 mile race & now we are standing on a beach , it was like a vacation. Everyone was so shocked, we were sad we weren’t with our families & we weren’t running , but this is a one in a
My bruised ego and sprained ankle lay with me in a sweaty mess on the beach volleyball court. Luckily, we were at the most incredible athletic facility that I had ever seen. After a long summer of countless tournaments and red, white, and blue banded medals, I made the U17 USA National Beach Volleyball Team roster. Accordingly, I received the opportunity to train at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista. At the time, I didn 't understand the incredible
as posadas is a religious festival that is a key part of Christmas Traditions in Mexico and in some parts of the United States. Las posadas is celebrated from December 16th to the 24th, the nine nights leading up until Christmas. The nine nights represent the nine months that Joseph was in Mary's womb. Posadas may sometimes be confused as a Christmas party, but they are in fact a religious event. Las posadas honor the journey from Nazareth to Bethleham that Mary and Joseph made in search of a place of refuge where baby Jesus could be given birth to by Mary.
In 1924 Elias Calles was elected president of Mexico. He supported agrarian, labor, and educational reforms even though he was more conservative. Being aware of previous military uprisings, Calles ended the political influence of the army. Also during his term, Calles had many difficulties with the United States and the Roman Catholic Church. Calles remained in power for over ten years due to his use of “puppet” presidents(e.g.
Spain conquered Peru in 1533 through the exploits of Francisco Pizarro with an army of only 180 men. Pizarro’s military strategy was assisted by simple deceitfulness. Before the Spanish arrived, a devastating war of succession gripped the empire. In 1532, Atahuallpa’s army defeated the forces of his half-brother Huascar in a battle near Cuzco. Pizarro invited Atahuallpa to attend a feast in his honor, and the emperor accepted.
It is widely believed that Mexicans only drink tequila which is not true, they also drink water like all human being because it's too essential for their (and our) existence. Speaking of drinks and meals, people tend to think that Mexicans eat only tacos or to say only „latino food“ what we would call it, but they also, like everyone else like to cook what they like to eat, not only their national food. People have the impression that all Lations are Mexican, one can say that that is a bit racist, but a Mexican would say it's too racist. One cannot judge someone's nationality based only on their skin tone. They also connect Mexicans with their music and traditional clothing.
