Cuernavaca día 6

“The girls really showed their SGS spirit today!” (Katya)

…..and you too Katya! You climbed with the safety emergency kit all the way! You are our guardian angel. Thank you from the heart.

We are so very proud of all our girls and chaperons for 100% participation in our Tepoztlan climb up. The girls did a great job supporting each other on the climb up and the climb down. We all made it to the top!

“Im so glad you didn’t let me quit” (Audrey’s Mom to Katya)

Our day began with a Spanish class at Encuentros after which we left for Tepoztlan, a town 17 Km away from Cuernavaca. A steep climb up to the pyramid was the day’s challenge.
