Long time

I've been a slacker. I'm now back in GA and home for summer. Mexico was absolutely amazing in a lot of ways. I learned so much there, and most of it was not about Spanish, though that definitely improved. Most of what I learned was about myself. I've really been trying to work on myself lately, and I feel like I made a lot of progress while I was in Mexico...not to say I don't have a lonng way to go. It's an eternal progress, and I don't think I'll ever really completely get there in this life. But I'm making progress and setting goals, which I need to work harder to stick to.

Mexico, though...I'll try to give a summary, in a somewhat stream-of-consciousness fashion (in other words, one word summaries of things). Kissing politicians, getting popsicles in the rain, hanging out on the roof at our house, pyramid climbing, cenote swimming, long hours on buses, random surreal experience involving being in a Mexican religious parade and a traveling circus, hot and humid, baptisms at the Merida temple, mule/horse pulled trains to go to the cenotes, amazing caves, the beach at Progreso, the rain at the beach at Progreso, awesome host family, AZ roommates, making Sunday almuerzo (late lunch, biggest meal of the day), closing social, kayaking with Lauren, fun conversations with Alyssa, and now I have to go...hopefully, more later.
