Mexico was my study abroad location during my first college experience. My thesis was on Mayan Art and Architecture which meant I spent a lot of time hanging out at really old historical site. Cool stuff if you are a #historynerd like myself… probably pretty boring if you aren’t. In addition to the Mayan sites I visited, I made my way around much of Mexico learning a fair amount about our neighbors to the south.
Curious as to why Cinco de Mayo is even a thing?
