This year, I went to Mexico for the first time. It was also my first time being so far from home. Being in Mexico was hard at first, because I don’t speak Spanish. After a while, I sort of understood it.
Going into Mexico, I can really see a difference in the way they live compared to the way we live. There is very little green, and dust is everywhere. The majority (where I served) lived in small houses with more than one family living there. I find it really cool that even though they have very little, they still make a life out of it.
