My last weekend in Guadalajara   (published in Mexico)

April 26, 2010 by   Comments(0)

I have recently experienced my last weekend in Guadalajara. This "end of the trip" feeling is well known to me for the simple matter that I have seen so many other volunteers experience their last week. However it has finally come to my end and I am without words. I did enjoy my last weekend, not entirely registering that is was in fact my last weekend. In fact maybe that was the best way to spend it, for the simple fact that I did,   what is a regular weekend spent in Guadalajara.

My previous weekends were spend with good food, very good friends, mostly good weather, and tequila. A usual weekend for a volunteer here starts on thursdays, this is due to the salsa night at La Mutalista. However this weekend I decided to bail on salsa, since I go almost every thursday, and just spend it with my host sister and a bottle of tequila ( maybe not the smartest idea, but it was fun). Friday came, with a hangover and plans for another night of cerveza, tequila, and dancing.

That was a very enjoyable night as well... Saturday came with another hangover but promises of a very good Carne Asada barbeque hosted by my mexican family. By 8pm my hangover had passed and instead was filled with very good Carne Asada and the company of my family and friends. Sunday, was very typical as well. I enjoyed the good weather and all the outdoor activity (bicyling, roller skating, walking, running) spent on a main avenue near my home. Now it is monday, and my last week of work in my placement has begun until thursday when I get on a plane to a place that seems so distant, strange and new to me....

Hasta Luego mi segundo pais. Hola otra vez, mi hogar...?

ARTS & CRAFTS IN MEXICO: AN ARTISTIC TIME TRAVEL   (published in Mexico)

March 17, 2010 by   Comments(0)

Hello everyone, this morning I paid a visit to the Arts & Crafts project.

A project aimed to develop artistic skills in the area of ceramics, one of the most traditional and humble crafts in our country.

This workshop has been running for the last 60 years, without any interruption, a very Mexican style family business which to this day still remains truthful to it’s original purpose, to create meaningful Mexican art.

All the elements included in these creations are key aspects in Mexican culture, like ancient symbols, religious elements, wild colors and the everyday experiences in our city, all of these expressed through drawing, painting and molding to breathe passion into clay in the form of tiles, dishes, ashtrays, cups, plaques.

A beautiful experience for all artists, a time travel to an era when the world was less oriented to an all digital art atmosphere, back to the roots of it all, a man and his brush, a man and his naked hands.

Teaching in Mexico - Secondary School Culture Exchange   (published in Mexico)

March 17, 2010 by   Comments(0)

 

Hello everyone! Welcome to the new blog for Projects Abroad Mexico!

I want to start this blog by writing about an amazing contribution done by the Projects Abroad volunteers in the Cultural Exchange week at one of the Secondary Schools where volunteers work.

Secundaria 55 created this event to promote the cultural exchange between countries and to give the kids a new approach to different cultures. By promoting this kind of activities, the education authorities aim to encourage the new generations to learn new languages.

The activities were merely interactive between volunteers and students! Projects Abroad staff was also there to introduce the event, translate and to present the volunteers. Singing, handcrafting, language activities and dancing were part of the show!

We really had fun! Special thanks to Nina Van Veen, Sabrina Hahn, Emily Bail, Julia Knudsen, Mair Jones and Gillian Thurman.
