Update from Mexico!

Add Image
Hey guys-

I'm leaving in a few days to work in Chiapas, probably in the jungle, for three or four weeks, so I wanted to wish everyone a good end of the school year! And summer vacation, graduation, all that fun stuff.

I will be living in a community, not sure where yet, studying agriculture and self-sufficiency, not sure exactly what yet either. I hope to learn some Mayan medicine too! I'll be living with a family again, so I want to help out in the kitchen and learn how to make some of the food- like tortillas from scratch and tamales. Mmmm...

Here are some pictures: the first is the use of some bottles to line herb beds in a community we visited about 2 hours from Oaxaca City and the the second is some urban agriculture that we saw in Mexico city, planting in tires.

Take care everyone!
