Well, I am living abroad...yet again. After Singapore, Spain, Turkey, Korea the Netherlands (and returning to Spain for a Masters) I've unpacked my backpack a little closer to home in Mexico. I live in Culiacan where I am trying my hand at teaching English to University and high school students. Below you'll find random updates as I go to festivals, explore my city or just feel like sharing a random story.

What time is it?

So my lunch costs $36.00/month.../about maybe $1.50 /meal (I think theres about 22 work days...so yeah)

Pretty darn good deal if I do say so myself

hmmm...lets analyze the numbers more in depth:

Carissa vs. Lilia "Who has a good Deal"

[Lunch/Month] $36 $154
[ Lunch/Meal] $1.50 $7
[Cost of Living
per month] 10 pesos $2,000
Results: The numbers support the belief that its "a pretty darn good deal."

As long as it is edible and you don't have to make it to take to school in "Tupperware", it is a great deal! I paid $1.75 for a styrofoam tray full of shredded iceberg lettuce for lunch. No joke!
