CASA Meet-UP

A compilation of footage from a recent youth meet-up from CASA. Here the kids had a chance to explore film, salsa, breakdancing, baile folklorico and theatre. Many of these kids have kids of their own, and all have heavy experiences and complicated…

Musical Nostalgia

Well I have been back in Austin for a couple weeks now and have found it pretty difficult to write. I suppose part of it has to do with adapting to a new place and situation. Life here is quite different from the ejido life, obviously. Some people call it ‘culture shock.’ Although I speak some Spanish with friends, I now use English most of the time instead. My little house on the east side is there with all the amenities, although I do have a hammock set up. When I moved into the place last…See More

Woman Power

One of the many themes that have become clear in this voyage is that of women and their role in society. To begin, I think it starts in the home. What role does your mom play in your household? A huge one, I bet. I know that without my mom, the strongest pillar of the family unit would crumble. Her role in making income, taking turns preparing meals, cleaning when my lazy siblings don’t, and offering motherly warmth and advice only moms can is priceless. Although the activities that are…See More

Maya Home Gardens

Hola! Does anyone have a garden? In Austin I keep a small plot with some friends at the Alamo Community Garden. Luckily they have been taking care of it; from what I hear, the weather has been a tad cold so the plants required some cover. The weather in Merida has warmed up considerably – though it never got quite cold, at least in my opinion – and I am told that it will remain this way. A pathetically short winter if you ask me though I am not complaining. Returning to the garden topic, I find…See More

Latinita STILL in Yucatan

Hello ladies! Pardon my delay, I have been in the ejido in these past weeks and there is no internet, not even a cell phone signal. This seeming lack of technology is more than made up for with the amount of roaming pigs, cows, chickens, turkeys, and chickens. The ejido has been graciously open with me. At 5’4 I am actually tall compared to everyone else, so that – along with my lighter skin, nose ring, and ‘western’ clothes – make me stand out a tad. Despite this, people were very welcoming…See More

Pak'chen

Posted on January 29, 2010 at 12:00am 0 Comments

Pak’chen (no one is quiet sure what it means) is the name of an amazing cenote located in the ejido of Felipe Carrillo Puerto. In previous blogs I have gone off about the beautiful ‘cenotes’ of Yucatan as well as ecotourism. This is a clear example of a ‘cenote’ destined to become an attraction, but that has yet to transform itself into an ecotouristic hotspot. There are so many of these beautiful waterholes that, in places where a large amount of property is owned and not fully surveyed yet,… Continue

Jaguars in the Jungle

Posted on January 27, 2010 at 5:22pm 0 Comments

Not too long ago I had the privilege to venture out to a little known Maya cenotes. As I explained in prior blogs, cenotes are luscious waterholes found all over the Yucatan peninsula. They exist due to the karst topography that characterizes the region. Likewise, there exist a large amount of underground caves that sometimes give way to a cenote. These are filled with enormously impressive stalactites and stalagmites in various shapes and sizes. The first cenote that I was invited to go to is… Continue

Nashielly, It is exciting hearing about your travels. Thanks for sharing. I'm also from Mexico, but I don't get to visit often enough. Your stories make me want to go back more often. I'm looking forward to hearing more about your adventures:)
