Merida Events: Bubble Football, Anyone?

Merida Events: Bubble Football, Anyone?

31 August 2015 Events, Reader's Polls 0

What is your native language?

This week continues Merida's quiet period, as people go back to school and jobs after spending every available minute at the beach over the summer. We suspect there will be a lot more coming soon. Of course this week, you can practice your Spanish comprehension by watching The Vagina Monologues. Or play in a Bubble Football Tournament... which is called Huech Ball here, by the way.

So you can plan for the future, we've linked to some upcoming workshops you might be interested in... they are not happening this week, but they might take a little more planning so we have included them. And of course, there are all those good movies... especially Cartel Land on Saturday night.

Enjoy!
