Year-End Reflections

Greeted by the sweet smell of Subway sandwiches, a $7 airport smoothie, Taylor Swift over the loudspeaker, 3 degrees and snow, and a TSA guard named Busby, I’M BAACCKKKK in America. Surprisingly happy to be here for now and particularly excited by fridges stocked with...

Week 52: Mexico City

Holy hot damn. Week 52. It’s over. WHAT!? I will do a more extensive reflection on the year, but for now, here’s how the last week of Remote Year went down! Processing all sorts of emotions. Interesting Mexico things: I wrote previously about the poor water situation...

Week 51: Mexico City

This week was all about spending time with Parea, literally every week night. The end is getting real. Freaky and sad. Spent the weekend with some fun visitors, getting in some more exploration of CD MX! Culture Things: Because Mexico: supposedly this is the proper...

Week 50: Mexico City

Y’all, this was my first full, 40-hour work week all year. I’m exhausted. Is this what real life is like? Nahh in all honesty, work was busy in a good way and I still had time for activities. And yes, still plenty of time for tacos. Culture Notes: Mexico City is...

Week 47: Medellin

This week primarily consisted of being sick in bed (just your standard head cold) BUT saw another amazing region of the country and got some very exciting job news! Things to note: Rappi food delivery, similar to UberEats, is used all over South America but is...

Week 46: Medellin

Another jam-packed, fun week in Colombia! It brought ‘gingerbread houses’, Colombia’s national sport, great workspace café’s, and tubing on a lake! Man, I just love it here. Also, Wednesday 12/11 marked officially one year since buying a one way ticket to Cape Town. A...

Week 45: Medellin

Medellliiiinn, what up!?! I am literally in love with Colombia, so far. First impressions? People in this city are SUPER friendly, weather is amazing (like 80 and sunny during the day), arepas de choclo are maybe the best food invented, so. many. hills (more like...
