Since Andrea and I have started this journey wandering through Latin America, we’ve gotten used to making new friends on the road. In Nicaragua, we were lucky enough to spend time with some old friends.
We were greeted with blue skies, long lines for the money exchange house, scores of classic 1950’s cars, and all kinds of people making their way through the city. With no cell phone service, no WiFi, and no plan, we felt like we’d traveled back in time.
We don’t know what the future holds for us or where we’ll work next, but we do know that we’ll always come back to Mexico City one way or another. With so many friends in the area, it definitely felt like a home.
It is impossible to be bored in Mexico City, there’s always something to be done. If you like to dance, you can be sure there are dance classes within walking distance of where you are staying. You like food? There’s a myriad of affordable and delicious places within a 3-block radius. Don’t feel like walking? Just wait on the street long enough and some tacos de canasta will come by. It’s always a pleasure to show my city to friends!

New Mexico was the state where I learned English, where I met some of my favorite teachers and best friends, where I discovered my love for hiking, where I lived by myself and away from home for the first time. New Mexico holds a very dear place in my heart and coming back to it felt like arriving home. I had missed it without knowing it, and realized how different my life is because of that adventure I embarked on almost a decade ago.
It turns out Vegas is a perfect mid-point from Yosemite to Bryce Canyon so we decided to spend a night here. We left Yosemite around 10:00 am after a delicious […]
