Melissa's Journey to Mexico

Current Location


Hi, I'm Melissa, and this year I am living in Mexico City studying Mexican piano music at the National Conservatory. I love exploring Mexico's enchanting art, culture, and music. Join me!


In today's Logbook, I discuss what daily life is like in Mexico City - the fifth largest city in the world!


Over winter break, I went with my husband Sam to visit his relatives in Colima and Michoacán. I enjoyed experiencing life in rural Mexico and meeting lots of cousins, aunts, uncles, and nephews!

Field Notes

In this Field Note, I discuss the simple tortilla. This staple of the daily Mexican diet is easily found in supermarkets in the U.S. also, but the way it is consumed in Mexican culture is unique.
