For over a year, I have been planning and preparing for my study abroad trip to Oaxaca, Mexico. After all the chaos of getting a passport and planning for the trip, I am finally ready. My flight leaves New Years Eve and we will land (hopefully) in Mexico just in time for a party and fireworks. I will be staying in Oaxaca until the 16th of January and I am really looking forward to the adventure.
During the trip, we will spend some of the time at Hotel Azucenas, a bed & breakfast and the other portion of our time at what is called a home-stay. We will be traveling to the famous Monte Alban and a hot springs while in Oaxaca, among many other ‘ma and pop’ coffee shops and restaurants. The studying part of being abroad will be spent in a classroom aiding the teacher with art.
I am most nervous for the culture and language barrier of the host family at our home stay. I am very excited to try their coffee and see the Mexican classrooms. Stay tuned for more about my Oaxacan adventure!
