Preparing for Mexico

In the midst of all the excitement surrounding the immigration debate currently happening in the State of Louisiana, I am quietly also preparing for my annual 5-week summer trip to Mexico.

As usual, I am looking forward to it immensely. I'll be going with what appears to be a wonderful group of 14 students.

But the best part of it is that my family will be joining me for a good portion of the trip, too. That always makes the trip much more enjoyable.

Now that I have completed the last of the final editing processes for my forthcoming book, I'll also be taking this summer trip to Mexico as an opportunity to start up my next book project, which will survey the history of Mexico's post-revolutionary foreign policy.

And my mouth is also watering at the prospects of dining out at the following fine establishments in Guadalajara:
La Chata
Scratch Do Ouro
i Latina

Leigh - Thanks for the congrats on the book. Also, you're welcome on the other front. Good luck and peace.

jkim - Yep, it's that time of the year already. And, yep, the fact that you're still not back in the U.S. is a bummer for some of us! Looking forward to seeing you when (and if!) you do return.
