Taxco, Mexico

One of the girl's in my group, Kira's, host dad found out we were going to Taxco and told us to visit his sister, who is a Nun just outside of Taxco. When we arrived in Taxco it was beautiful. Cobblestone streets, VW Beetle taxi cabs and rolling hills. We hopped on a combi to take us to the monastery to visit the Nun sister. The monastery was amazing... the Sound of Music meets Nacho Libre (because everyone was speaking Spanish). The Nuns were awesome. They played basketball, harvested bees for honey and made us delicious cookies. They let us stay at the monastery for the weekend and cooked us delicious meals... for free! Best. Vacation. Ever. -Paige Wortley (Mexico volunteer)
