Mexico 2012 Awesome!

I'm always looking for new and interesting videos and articles on Mexico. This You Tube video shows the incredible diversity of landscape in this great country -from desert to snow-capped mountains, from the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea to the Pacific Coast, and from quaint and colorful colonial towns to the vibrancy of Ciudad de México. I can hardly wait to travel and photograph many of these sites.

And some good economic news.

    My name is Jillian van der Gracht and I am currently in my fourth year at Capilano University, in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada working towards my Bachelor of Tourism Management. In our fourth year we have to complete a research paper that involves us each conducting our own research on a particular topic about the tourism industry. The topic I have chosen is expatriate tourism in Merida, Yucatan. I chose this topic after living in Merida from 2008-2009 after I graduated high school. I spent ten weeks taking an international program at Technologia Turistica Total, and then continued working with them and their Life Long Learning program.

    I have read portions of your blog and I was wondering if you would be interested in filling out a survey about your experiences in Merida. I was also hoping that you could possibly pass along the survey to some of your other expatriate friends that would be interested in assisting me in my research.

    I greatly appreciate you taking the time to read this and hope to hear from you soon. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

  2. Hi Jillian,
    I would most definitely love to participate in your research paper. I can recommend several friends that most likely participate, some newcomers to Merida and others who have been here for years.
