After all these years of being here I never realized one particular school gears towards keeping the traditions alive . The small children get schooled in the maya language as well as Spanish . Amongst the regular curriculum the school also incoperates Maya customs .
I heard from my trusted general manager Hilario on Thursday evening that the children would be having a parade the following day . I dashed down to the centre of the village with a couple of my guests.
Pity the rains came but it did not deter the children from walking. They did not do any street dancing but waited to get to the school where they could perform
Afterwards they ate the traditional chile Relleno Negro with invited guests from Merida and the children enjoyed “arroz con leche” what we know as rice pudding
it was so adorable to watch the little ones and the guests where equally delighted to be able to have an insight to local culture
