Mi Mexico Monday: Pan American Games Parade
Monday, October 24, 2011
For those of you unfamiliar with the Pan American Games, they're a lot like the Olympics, but only for those that live on the American Continent (North and South America).
In honor of the Juegos Panamericanos, some of the schools here in town, got together to put on a small, very last-minute parade, with each class dressed up to represent the participating countries. Nick's 6th grade class was chosen to represent the United States.
Some of the other countries represented besides the U.S. and the host country, Mexico, were Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil and Canada.
I thought this was a fun festivity for all of the students involved and I hope it was a great learning experience for them as well. I would have liked to have seen Nick waving the American flag, but he had Escolta duties which were more important.
Have you been watching the PanAm Games?
