Playa Progreso & Kung Fu Panda 3 en Español

After leaving Dzibilchaltun we went to a restaurant at Progreso Playa.  We ordered drinks (non alcoholic strawberry coladas, lime coladas, non alcoholic strawberry daiquiris, and strawberry daiquiris), with these drinks came free appetizers.  So many came one after another... tacos, nachos, calimari, baby shark, potatoes, refried beans... We had to ask them to stop bringing the food.

After the food and drinks the boys played football on the beach, buried themselves in the sand and took pictures with everyone who asked for them.  These boys are like rock stars and everyone wants their pictures.  You all are going to have to live with these enormous egos when they get back so consider yourselves warned!!! 

After hours of play in the sand. We got back on the bus back to the AltaBrisa mall next to our school for dinner.  After dinner we went to see Kung Fu Panda 3 all in Spanish with NO SUBTITLES!!  The boys complained about it being a "baby movie" and how they wouldn't understand anything if it wasn't in English... Yea yea blah blah blah... I let them know before they came here that they would watch a Spanish language movie, that it was one of their World Language standards and that they will understand more than expected.  And guess what?  The main complainers were laughing at the jokes and really into the movie.  Some even admitted that the movie was "fiy" or "fire" meaning great.  They can choose their next movie as long as it is voiced over in Spanish, if it's in English with Spanish subtitles their brains will block out the subtitles not helping the objective of them learning Spanish.
