Faced with the uncertainties and ennui of post-grad life and in possession of a small grant from my alma mater, I’m escaping to Mexico and Guatemala to explore and study Spanish for 10 months. My goals: learn a little Spanish, go on some adventures, make genuine connections with new people in a new place, play a lot of soccer, eat a lot of tacos (but not right before the soccer), and last but not least, finally learn to play the congas. My guiding principle? Always, always Say Yes to Tacos.
