  • Back when I started thinking about my year abroad, having to factor in a long distance relationship alongside all the other madness that comes with living in a foreign country was not something I anticipated, and I am 99% sure my boyfriend neither planned on, nor wanted, a girlfriend living five and a half thousand miles away. But here we are, 6 months into my year abroad, me in Mexico City and him back in England; así es la vida.

  • In November 2000, Alan and Pamela Skuse left their home on the Sunshine Coast of Australia, to volunteer at an orphanage in Tapachula, southern Mexico, for 12 months. The orphanage closed down after six months however, leaving the Skuses with a life changing decision: to return to Australia, or take on the overwhelming challenge of caring for the seven children full time.

    Leaving the children to return to the streets and lives of poverty and abuse was not an option so, despite the lack of resources and support, the couple decided to take on the huge responsibility of establishing their own refuge, ’Albergue, Misión México, Dando Amor, Vida y Esperanza’ (Mission Mexico Refuge, Giving Love, Life and Hope).

  • Mexico: Discovering the desert

    Tuesday, 30 November 2010
    Travelling round Mexico, both South and North, has given me the chance to get to grips with cultural differences, within the country itself. Whereas the states of Chiapas and Oaxaca, rich in mores and ancient ruins yet flagrantly poor in an economical sense, offer a warm welcome to tourism, the North of the country seems more hell-bent on rinsing large sums of money out of unsuspecting foreigners. Don’t get me wrong, I had an amazing time in the North, over the few days I visited San Luis de Potosí, Real de Catorce and parts of the Sierra Madre desertic landscape.

  • Veracruz

    Monday, 06 December 2010
    City of passion
    Veracruz state, in South Eastern Mexico, was the first city Hernán Cortés landed in, making it the most important port in the history of South America. Sadly, as you come into the portal town, most of the architectural remnants of the 16th century have been eradicated, you can still spot colonial houses and mansions here. There’s a really relaxed vibe to the place, with bars and restaurants abounding, as well as bright young things. Music is also big here - if you’re really want to get to grips with Mexican culture, this is the place to come to! Trova, jarochos, amazing food, one of the prettiest zócalos in Mexico and friendly people make Veracruz shine as a prime destination for the year abroad.

  • Puebla

    Saturday, 27 November 2010
    City of the Angels
    Puebla, or rather ‘La Ciudad de Los Angeles’ (before LA stole its name), is rooted in the gorgeous plains of Central Mexico, neighboured with the impressive Popocatépetl and La Malinche volcanoes. Known as the fourth largest city in Mexico, Puebla is a force to be reckoned with. Historically important as it was the stop-over for Spanish families between the port of Veracruz and the metropolis of Mexico City, Puebla is awash with colonial buildings and echoes of its Iberian past influences. Talavera, the city’s own take on ceramic tiles, can be found on every street corner within the city centre, whereas if you travel outwards, you’ll come up close to modern buildings, such as Las Animas, a popular shopping centre. Here, both new and old intertwine, with contemporary restaurants rubbing shoulders with folkloric fondas...A city known for its culture, its food and its party atmosphere - a place a student can truly call home from home, for their year abroad.
