Hacienda experience (Nehemie Gauthier, Mexico)


In these pictures, my group and I visited a Henequen hacienda. A hacienda is a plantation with a dwelling house. My favorite part about going to the hacienda was learning the history of the Henequen fibre. This fibre is used to make rope, hammocks, bags, and even placemats. Within the hacienda, there was a beautiful cenote in which we could swim in. Cenotes are deep water wells and can be found within caves. Also, the cenote reminded me of a spring. The water was beautiful but very cold. In the pictures attached, we decided to take photos of the background show the beauty of the excursion.
