On Saturday March 22, we went to Xochimilco ( so-chi-mil-co ) for a boat ride. It was awesome. We went on it to go to the Island of the Dolls. We had to take a two hour car ride to get to the boats. When we got on the boats, we had to be on the boat for five hours. I am going to tell you about the boat ride. When we got on, Mia and I looked at the water and it was really deep and had a lot of seaweed in it. There was not a bathroom on the boat but the guy who steered it stopped for the bathroom on the way. The guy who steered the boat had to use a long stick to push us along. We grabbed stuff like seaweed, sticks, and leaves.
|I grabbed a big stick and started paddling too like the guy with the big stick|
|My aunt paid 100 pesos for different people in boats to play music|
|Everyone was dancing on the front of the trajinera|

|On the way back, there was a guy selling plants so Mia and I each got a little plant. It was so cute.|
