Traveling Around

One thing I intend to do as much as possible is traveling around central and southern Mexico to visit all the interesting cities, archaeological sites, world-class museums, and enjoy rich cultural experiences in this nation with a cultural heritage going back thousands of years. My lifelong affinity for Mexico was fanned by a year of art history studies during my art major at San Diego State University. Go Aztecs! Learning about the arts of Mexico taught me about its modern and ancient cultures, so I must have a level of appreciation for Mexico that many from my country do not.
