Day 1

While keeping up with their usual skateboarding shenanigans, Edelman and Amendola also stayed active with a few rounds of pickup soccer with local children.

“They didn’t speak English, we didn’t speak Spanish, but it was cool to communicate through competition,” Edelman said. “Everybody speaks winning.”

Day 2

The duo’s second day was dedicated to none other than lucha libre. Known for its colorful masks and high-flying acrobatics, lucha libre refers to the form of entertainment that is Mexican professional wrestling. One of the sport’s prominent figures, El Hijo del Fantasma, gave the wide receivers a tutorial on how to execute “la tijera,” one of the common moves.

Day 3

Edelman and Amendola kept their adrenaline pumping with a visit to the Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation’s animal sanctuary, which is home to approximately 300 rescued lions, leopards, jaguars, and other felines.

“My goal in life is to have enough success where you name a lion after me,” Edelman told the owner and operator, Eduardo Serio.
