Ok, since I have a little time, I’m going to fill in the blanks about my winter vacation. As you know, one of the teachers (Jodi) from the TEFL program in Puerto Vallarta come to visit us in Querétaro. She and I took a driving vacation to some of the most amazing places. Here’s whereContinue reading “Chunk 2: Xilitla & Hotel Tapasoli”
Our adventure in Mexico City, new jobs and new job prospects. Stormy weather.
