A Fantastic Weekend

excellent experience!

were beautiful! We spent the rest of the day in Pátzcuaro. It was a sunny day, just perfect to
walk around the main public square. There were lots of tourists. There was some traditional
dancing demonstration. The dancers were very talented. My uncle took me to an ice cream
shop. I had some “nieve de pasta”. It was absolutely delicious. On Sunday we went to the
