America is seriously lacking in some culture departments.

After Sophia's birthday came our second trip to Oaxaca. We got up bright and early, and went to the temple. Of all of the amazing places I've been, nothing beats the temple. While we were there we met the new temple president! He was super nice and gave us his phone number so that we could call him and his wife if we ever came back. He really wanted her to meet us and she was sick that day :/ We tried to meet up with them later, but it just didn't work out. We did however meet up with one Lightning McQueen :)
We had to say goodbye to Sophia, because she was going back to Tehuacán for the weekend. It was so sad. You can definitely feel that someone is missing when we're not all together. After we said goodbye to her we checked into our hostel, and then headed to the zocalo. Let me just tell you, it was a party! And if anyone knows how to party, it's the Mexicans :)
They had a bunch of dancing going on. Everyone could do it! I don't think I've ever been so jealous that dancing, traditional dancing, isn't a big part of American culture anymore.
It was the weekend of the Revolution, a celebration of Mexico winning their Revolutionary War. Entonces, carteles políticos!
