Please join me starting this evening at my new Mayan Adventure Blog, "One Week in Mexico" (http://www.oneweekinmexico.com/), where I will be chronicling my exciting 7 day trip from Brooklyn, NY into the heart of the Mayan Yucatan.
Everything will be unscripted, and I literally have no idea what to
expect, because I haven't really planned anything for this trip in
advance. It just sort of crept up on me and, well, here it is!
plan to update my trip blog as often as possible while there, pending
internet access at my AirBnB host's home as well as wi-fi hotspots in
and around Cancun and surrounding areas. I will be uploading lots of
photos via my new Instagram account, which some of you are already
following (thank you very much!), and I intend to speak A LOT of really
bad Spanish in an effort to increase my conversational level in that
I have already posted my first two entries as well
as a third containing two short videos about what I hope to accomplish
on this trip. Subsequent videos posted in the next day or two will
explain my philosophy on language learning and travel -- as well as, in
particular, the resources that I have used over the past few years to
gradually teach myself basic Spanish without really having put that much
of an "official" effort into learning the language so far.
Native speakers of Spanish will notice that my grammar will really suck,
but that I will be able to get by and have a great time as well as participate in
some solid, basic conversations with locals while there.
Thanks in advance to everyone for following "One Week in Mexico." See you all in the jungle!
