Another day in The Native Pipeline Program, yesterday we got to sleep in for a longer time and that was so good and relaxing. We had a mixed up schedule but it was still fun we learned about the Hawaiian culture. We also learned how to make Indian Fried Bread that was very delicious and it just makes me feel like my grandmas home. Then, we went to go to do some salsa dancing and yoga which is very tiring and mind-relaxing. I also have to say I drew some drawings that took a bit of time but it was worth it because i know i put all my time and effort into it. 

Today we went for a walk to the market and i got to see a lot of the area and the amazing sites they have. While we were walking around i seen a lot of things: movies, stores, restaurants, salons, banks, and music shops. I was very interested in the music shop and i went to check it out there was all kinds of stuff in there i liked it a lot. Great music of all kinds i thought it was very cool. I also seen flowers everywhere and i decided to pick some and i got a rose and it smelled beautiful i think i might want to be botanist.
