Today we took a bus ride from our hotel in Guanajauto, Mexico to Irapuato, Mexico. The ride took approximately 45 minutes. We visited the Irapuato-Salamanca Campus. Once we were at the campus Mr. Hayes took us to the Penn State classroom where we were introduced to the students of the university of Guanajuato. After we were introduced we had a lecture on cacti, agave, mesquite. Later we got to visit the National agave center. We found out that there is two objectives from this center one is to preserve agave genome and the second was to promote different uses of different species of agave. Also found out that the life expectancy of agave is 10-12 years. All in all today was a good day and we got to bond with the students of the university of Guanajauto.
