Mexico – 6.30.1999


OK, I’m finally starting to like Mexico.  Today we went to the pyramids in Teotihuacan.  The two great pyramids of the sun and moon were very impressive.  We climbed them both and I found out how out of shape I am.  There were many people bothering you to buy stuff but weren’t nearly as aggressive as the ones in Morocco.  

I finally feel like I”m getting into a routine and feeling at home in Texcoco.  I still hate getting up so early but it’s not really that bad.  We must remember to keep the stupid window shut because last night was the second night mosquitoes kept us awake.

It’s interesting to see how our group is coming along and what cliques might form.  I think we are too small a group and together too much for cliques to form.  I do however predict that there will be a few confrontations.  This is because we are around each other all day long everyday and have different personalities.  

I really dread these long days of class.  I now realize how easy I had it in the Toledo program.  I am grateful to be learning about Mexico though.  I also miss my girlfriend a lot.  I am looking forward more to seeing her for a week when I get back than going to Acapulco.  I will get the most out of this trip though and have a great time even if it kills me.
