I believe that telling our stories, first to ourselves and then to one another and the world, is a revolutionary act. It is an act that can be met with hostility, exclusion, and violence. It can also lead to love, understanding, transcendence, and community.
For some persons there exists an organic harmony between all matter and all activity, whose discovery is the purpose of their lives and whose evidence, being inexhaustible, can only be selected by the good judgement and perpetual curiosity of the individual… These persons are the traveling species.
Muchas gracias :)
I guess you could say this started last year when I dropped out of an overpriced liberal arts university and decided to trade the classroom for rundown buses, misunderstood translations and street stewed food that leaves a mark. But honestly, this travel bug has been with me since birth. As for the Mexico leg of this lifelong journey, I’ve been here off and on since March 2014 and I plan to be here for at least the rest of the year-federales permitting. As for how many places I’m going to visit… ALL OF THEM.
Thanks for the curiosity!
