spring break: a week south of the border



my life goal is to travel, to visit hundreds of countries and all seven continents, to learn about different cultures and eat food from around the world, but right now, and probably for many years to come, my heart is in mexico. so whenever we get a free week, we tend to spend it down south.

the first time i visited oaxaca, three amazing things happened: i was lucky enough to see and swim with sparkly, shimmery, wonderful bioluminescent algae, i visited a museum dedicated to sea turtles, and i met rcg.

this trip mirrored, and surpassed, the original: we swam with the phosphorescent algae again, and it was even brighter and more spectacular than before, and we helped liberate baby sea turtles into the ocean.
