Valle De Bravo, Central Mexico

February, 16th, 2017, I embarked on my first journey to Mexico. Having lived in a border town, just 5 miles from the Border of Mexico for a majority of my life, I have been emersed in Mexican culture. Nonetheless, I have somehow never made it quite across the border.

Few words could describe this experience, so I’m going to keep it short.

This is my journey to Mexico, in pictures.
