Matilda’s first blog post

Hi, my name is Matilda. I’m 8 years old and I’m traveling the world with my family for one year. The first place we are going is Oaxaca, Mexico. The first thing I did here was I went swimming in our big pool at our new house. Next to our pool is a play ground with two swings, a ladder to climb up to our tree house and a yellow slide. I love animals and I’ve seen lots of animals that I don’t see in Los Angeles. I saw donkeys on the streets and also turkeys. I also saw parrots in the trees by our house. A lot of times I see goldfinches in our trees too. Also, we see lots of wild dogs in the street everywhere. And lizards too.

We went to see ruins. The ruins were called the Yagul ruins. I found some holes that the Indians used to hide in from invaders. I went in some of them. The ruins were over 1000 years old! I was about to take a rock home but my Dad said the Indians might not like it so I didn’t take it.

One time we went into Oaxaca town and saw a bunch of things they made out of radishes. There were lots of different ones. My favorite was the Praying Mantis. My second favorite was Jesus on the cross. There are lots of churches in town and the buildings are very old. It’s a lot different than Los Angeles.

    Hi Henry, Why do you love my tooth so much? How much money did you get when you lost your teeth? Thanks for reading my blog post. I am working on blog post about some ruins here with my Dad. I am ok here. It didn’t hurt when my tooth came out. Did yours hurt? I think I will lose another tooth really soon. Love Charlie 🙂
