Diving in a Cenote and Coco
We took some rest at home because a big party was waiting for us that night. A friend had arranged a free entrance to a club Coco Bongo. It is in the hotel zone and it is supposed to be one of the best clubs in America! It also has like a 60 euro entrance fee. We went there and at first we sat down at a table in the small bar downstairs. There were too many people inside so we had to wait for a table. Once that happened we went inside. Suddenly the place was huge with all these stairs and rooms and bars and I had no idea what to expect. Then we entered the main ‘room’ and it was this HUGE place. It looked like a place where music concerts were given which was kind of what happened there the whole night. You had a big stage up in the air and then a small one in the middle of the room and a lot of tables and bars on different levels on the sides. It was packed with people so we were lucky to get a table. So basically every half an hour a show would start. There was one of Madonna, Michael Jackson, Pitbull, Spiderman and something else. Someone would dress like the singer and wear and identical outfit like in the video clip of the song they were singing. They actually really looked like them. Really cool, like a concert! Then there were performances of movies like Spiderman and people would be falling out of the ceiling and hanging and dancing there while hanging from some ropes etc. Really fun to look at! Therefore there were also some older people who just came to see the performances while the young people would dance. In between the performances some girls from the public would be asked if they wanted to dance on the huge stage. While walking to our table this security guy asked if Fenja and I wanted to dance there. I was like; what? There?! In front of all those people?! We were feeling a bit shy so denied the offer but after a while we thought, why not?! And we ended up dancing there in front of the crowd hahaha. Gotta take the chances you get right? We stayed until quite late and once outside there were little girls selling bracelets. At almost 5 in the morning! So sad actually…but we did buy a few Well it was still raining and once home I slept immediately because Sunday I had to study for my first exam week! Not really looking forward to it actually. And here you still have classes in your exam week. So it is not like you get a week off and only go to school to study. I have a sustainable tourism, marketing, German and Scuba diving exam. Wish me luck!
P.S In a club Thursday we asked the DJ to put on a Dutch song but he was scared nobody would like it. However we were with all the German exchange students who knew the song and I had shows it to some Mexicans as well so when he eventually played it everybody went crazy. So funny to hear a Dutch song in a Mexican club! It was the song Drank en Drugs which became really popular for no reason haha!
P.P.S one of our coordinates wanted a photo shoot with the exchange students by the "A" at our university so we were there for a while taking too many pictures :-)
