Jalpan, San Luis Potosi

Jalpan de Serra is a town in the state of Querétaro, where we stopped on our way to the Huasteca. It is also the main city in the Sierra Gorda region. Interestingly, Jalpan is home to one of five Franciscan...

Photos from Yautepec, Morelos

So here we go! I will start with a short entry about Yautepec, the town my sister lived in 2002-2003 and where we spent a few days before and a few days after our trip to the Huasteca. I wrote...

Just a quick hello!

Just a quick hello this morning, I got back from the trip at 1am and it was wonderful to sleep in today! It has been a full and exciting trip but nothing slow about it - six hotels in eight...

Feliz Navidad from Ciudad

Quick Merry Christmas from Ciudad Valles! One shared computer in lobby so not much time - hope to write more at some point. We saw the magical castle of Edward James, Las Pozas, and the Sótano de las Golondrinas, fantastic!...

Checking in from Xilitla, San Luis Potosi

We are here - only took ten hours... That was a long car ride in a small mini van! Lots of tiny speed bumps and I am too tall for the back seat so I hit my head repeatedly. We...

Reliving my exchange year

Being with my sister's host family brings back a lot of memories from my own exchange year in Panama thirteen years ago. For instance, we haven't really done much for the last three days. A short walk to town, laundry,...

Yautepec, Morelos

Yautepec is a small town in the state of Morelos, about 2-3 hours south of Mexico City. (Totally depending on traffic!) My little sister spent a year here as an exchange student in 2002-2003, and is now back visiting her...

Arrived in Mexico

Just wanted to post a short update! I arrived in the town of Yautepec (where my sister´s host family lives) at 9pm their time yesterday. That meant that door to door the trip was 17 hours - but effective flying...

Packing for MX

I have often enjoyed reading the packing posts of other Slow Travelers. Kim has a great selection, for instance. Sandra (the one of Too Much Luggage) naturally has written about packing! Andasamo wrote about it a few months ago, before...

Mexico!

I just spent some time counting the trips I have done since I finished graduate school in May of 2005. I have been SO fortunate to make a lot of trips, both for work and for pleasure. Some have been...

Last day in Mexico City...

Today is my last day here and I am scrambling to finish! I will definitely not be done with the project but a lot of it can be done from back in Baltimore as well. I have enjoyed my stay...

Downtown Mexico City

I spent Sunday morning with a friend exploring the Zocalo (the main square) and the historical center. The highlights included the Diego Rivera murals in the Palacio Nacional, the Aztec ruins (Templo Mayor), and of course the general hustle and...

Mexican Food is Good

The food here is AWESOME! I knew that what we eat in the rest of the world call Mexican food was not the real thing (the Santa Maria taco dinners favored by Norwegian families come to mind, or the overly...

Teotihuacan

Yesterday (Saturday) was my only real day off here in Mexico City and I decided to take a tour that included the Basilica of the Virgen de Guadalupe, and the Teotihuacan Pyramides. I was very exited to see more of...

These boots were made for walking – but these streets surely weren’t: Still in Mexico City

I no longer feel tipsy which is a good thing! I have been told that you do get drunk faster here, so I will watch myself tomorrow at the office Christmas party… I got an idea of the vastness of...

I am in Mexico City!!

Sunday afternoon I left for Mexico City on a business trip. It is my second time in Mexico, but since my first trip was to Playa del Carmen in Quintana Roo, which is as touristy as it gets (although still...
