Photos! (Tapachula, Chiapas/ Mexico City)

   

    

 Our first destination: Tapachula! We arrived after a tiring travel day on May 4th.

  

Delicious ice cream break in the very hot Tapachula, Chiapas. This was our last day in Tapachula after our time in the Guatemala Highlands. We later flew to Mexico City (on May 9th).

  

Exploring Mexico City.

 

Learning about migration in Mexico with Arturo. We discussed the big picture of migration (political and economic reasons) and learned about different push/pull factors for people’s on the move.
