Hello everyone! My first trip during the grad school experience was going back to Cancún, Mexico for Matt’s birthday. It was a fantastic time. The weather is amazing, the beaches are beautiful, and the food is absolutely delicious! I know that Mexico gets a bad rap at times, but we have always had a safe and fun time while in the country. The people are friendly, and it’s so fun being immersed into a different culture.
While it was sometimes difficult to balance school and vacationing during the trip, it was nice being able to submit assignments while watching the waves and listening to the breeze rustle the palm trees.
The only downer of the trip was being stuck at O’Hare for about 48 hours. The lesson to be learned is that you avoid O’Hare, not Mexico, in the winter!
