*Click Click Click* There’s No Place Like Home, But México Was Wonderful

Spending this summer studying abroad in México City (or CDMX for Ciudad de Mexico) was truly a priceless experience. I have been to México before, visiting my family in our small town, rarely spending too much time in cities, so being in CDMX made me feel like I was in a completely different México. The

Mexico, Te Extraño Mucho

It has been a little over a month since I’ve returned to the U.S., and I must admit I miss Mexico City a lot. I was really living my best life there enjoying delicious food, meeting so many amazing people, and exploring new parts of the city everyday. Just like I expected, I miss the

The final days of this study abroad program are quickly approaching. I can’t believe I have already spent 8 weeks in Mexico!

Trip to Oaxaca

The class field trip to Oaxaca was the best field trip we have had so far. The city felt like stepping into the past while still keeping hold of some modern comforts. It is a city with European-style architecture placed against a backdrop of plenty of clear skies, fresh air and wild plants. Shops, mostly

Expedites I Will Never Forget

A class I have been enjoying so much has been Culture & History of Mexico. Every class I am learning more and more about Mexico, and my parents enjoy hearing of the reminiscent history of their home country. Every expedite we’ve embarked on has been a new and exciting adventure. Our trip to Teotihuacán has
