So far this is the most technical and cool thing that i have on the blog yet! In my opinion. presenting… THE PHANTOM THREE! My first big flight was in Cancun and in Isla mujeres.The DJI Phantom 3 standard edition is a ready to fly quad copter with a built in camera and stabilization. It is a beginners choice quad copter and is fairly easy t fly (as long as you have played video games before). it has a return to home button and a GPS to track It. if you are wishing to take your over the border by plane then i recommend getting a drone bag from amazon. As well an extra battery for extended periods of flight. (22 to 25 minutes is on a DJI Phantom 3 battery) bellow are some pictures i took with the drone except the first that one was just for fun. I wish it was possible for me just to hang on to the bottom of it and fly away with it.
Isla Mujeres was a great island experience. With ocean veiws and snorkling/scuba diving everyone will love. I recommend it as a vacation spot. Me, my family and a couple family’s that are our freinds went this winter break and It was beyond fun. We got golf carts and drove them around the island to a zipline andto the south side of the island and to the turtle farm! I recently recommend this place to all travelers.
Must do on Isla Mujeres:
for beach and good stay in hotel stay at playa Norte only
rent a golf cart $40-$45 and do island tour
visit Punta Sur
do zip lines at park GARRAFON natural park
have lunch or dinner at el phenix beach restaurant
have dinner at Olivia restaurant MUST DO*
Do morning yoga at the tree house near Maria Del Mare (it isn’t really a tree house its on the beach next to the restaurant)
It was interesting to go visit MUSA and the lost under water statues. it is the largest assembly of under water sculptures presenting a main gallery that consists of over four hundred life sized statues the MUSA was designed as an echo-project habitat for fish and other reef creatures. the idea of MUSA was to take divers away from Manchones reef so they would stop destroying it.
This piano recital was before the new years. many students from all sides of Dallas including me and my little sister Dasha i played Dmitri Schostakowitsch Walzer nr.2 and prelude in C Minor, Alexander Marofsky. Over all it was very fun! The video that is posted bellow is unity by the fat rat. I learned it myself!
It was my first visit to Russia. And i am impressed we visited Moscow and saint Petersburg. There are a lot of reviews on internet from travelers, I would suggest an easy schedule for four days stay in Moscow :

Memorial Museum of Cosmonatics
Dinner at Elarji restaurant
Red Square evening walk
Breakfast at Cafe “Breakfast” (very good Benedict)
Walk on the bridge near Cathedral of Christ The Savior, Patriarshy bridge
Red Square tour with guide
Bolshoy Kameny bridge (best spot for pictures)
Yuri Nikulin circus
Dinner at “Horoshie Ludi”
Kremlin inside tour or no tour (optional)
Changing of the guards
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
GUM department store (you can skip this because its really not a gum store)
Gorky park!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(must rent bike or hover board)
My first scuba experience was in Isla Mujeres my diving instructors name was Jesus. The first time I hit the water as a diver it wasn’t scary but i was a little paranoid. The technique that I used was called the “back roll”.
A year later I got a present from my grandmother and grandfather it was a scuba camp that i took to get certified as an JR OPEN WATER SCUBA DIVER!!
At the end of camp I had two days of certification, each day using skills that I learned at camp and and tests were at Clear Springs. They have courses to take you to the plane that is sunken in the lake and the forty foot shark thats there to but don’t worry its all metal another cool attraction i would visit is the boat thats there too. Here is a cool fact: the plane is owned Mesquite Aviation witch my dive instructor mr Chip owns because he founded Mesquite Aviation, cool right?
Now I’m a official JR OPEN WATER SCUBA DIVER!!!!!!.
I finally finished my oral book report! The name of the book is “Code talkers ” by Joseph Bruchac, a novel about the Navajo Marines of World War Two. My presentation was on poster board. Every one thought that my idea was cool. I chose the hero in the book and how he changed through it. It is about a little Navajo boy who wanted to be a Marine. years passed and the boy became a marine and flew through boot camp and military training in a breeze. After the war he retired as a war veteran and told the world about his story. on my posters i drew and cut two different versions of my character and then painted them and added details.
