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.

  • made amazing friends.
  • hand drawn about 15 workshets (yes, ME hand drawing!).
  • used wordreference about a million times.
  • mastered the art of dinner (or a I call it, "throw stuff in a pot and heat) .
  • been heartbroken.
  • remembered the heart is a fabulous organ that luckily continues to heal and function.
  • cried at a bank (twice).
  • lost a passport.
  • gone to Malta.
  • been inside some of the oldest ruins!
  • rocked Barcelona.
  • visited the the lovely gardens in Aranjuez.
