Below is the conversation Mr. Figinblossom's students had after they encountered the beetles. Read it, then add your contribution to the conversation in your TRAVEL LOG.

Wally: Hey, Sarge, can I have a word with you?

Jose: Que pasa? What's up?

Wally: Well, the song of the beetles has got me to thinking. I started our fight the other day by making a crack about the way you talk - and I was wrong to do that.

Jose: Yeah, that made me muy enojado - very angry. So mad that I said something I didn't really mean about the color of your skin.

Wally: Hey, I'm sorry, Sarge. I take it back. We've got our differences, but those shouldn't keep us from being friends.

Jose: I'm sorry, too, amigo. I take back what I said. I always liked being your ally better than being your enemy, anyway. Shake to secure the peace agreement.

Catrina: Well, well: the warring parties have come to terms. The only way I'll get peace is to get back to the comfort of my living room. How many more of these mushy musical animals have we got to pass anyway? I'm bushed!

Tina: Well, I'm vined.

Jose: !Que gracioso! Onward troops!
