Skydiving

On the 22nd I was part of a group of 17 that went SKYDIVING! We did tandem jumps -- which means the instructor/tandem partner is attached to you (and basically does all the work-- pulling the chute, landing, etc). I had never done it before and was a little nervous -- but I absolutely loved it! 

We went with a group called Skydive Mexico (http://www.paracaidismo.com.mx), about 20 minutes outside of Cuernavaca.  

Thanks to a friend's 2 cameras and photos from my jump instructor/tandem partner, I have some awesome photos to share!

freaking out because....

...I sat next to the "door" and was nervous about falling out
of the plane before jump time!
