Katherine's Journey to Mexico

Current Location

Mexico City, Mexico

Join me on my nine-month adventure as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Ixtapan de la Sal, Mexico.


I visited Guanajuato, a magical city found about five hours northwest of Mexico City. With its gorgeous architecture, nearby ruins and mummy museum, Guanajuato is one of my favorite cities in Mexico.


In less than a month, my time in Mexico will officially be over and I'll be headed toward new adventures back in the USA. I've had a fun and challenging time south of the border.

Field Notes

Like many places in the world, Mexico has many stray cats and dogs. While here, I learned about this problem, helped campaign to spay and neuter more animals and even adopted a cat myself!


Living in Mexico has encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone and try new things. Having never learned to ride a bike as a child, I actually learned on the side of a mountain in Mexico!
