The delegate’s dinner was the perfect way to cap off the wonderful three days of international dialogue! Carol Baur outdid themselves with the fiesta that had it all. We walked into the school’s courtyard greet by our new Mexican friends and the mouth watering scent of corn tortilla tacos, espiropapas, and traditional corn soup. After eating out weight in food, we hit the dance floor! The DJ strictly played reggaeton, the most popular music genre with the Carol Baur students, and we klutzy Americans tried to learn how to dance as eloquently as them. Fed up with embarrassing ourselves, we taught them how to swing dance. You would have thought it was a Collegiate dance with how well they learned our moves. It was amazing to teach a piece of our culture. At the end of the dance the DJ was kind of enough to play “JuJu on That Beat” so that we could show how skilled Americans are on the dance floor. The evening ended with a slide show of pictures taken during the conference and us swearing that we will listen to reggaeton at home. The delegates dinner was a fun evening to solidify new friendships, eat copious amount of Mexican food, and dance the night away.
