After Ramona Maharaj from the City of Hamilton had an outstanding experience in South America, she had decided it was time to start heading up back north, but not without making a stop in Mexico. As Central America’s largest country and one of the most concentrated Hispanic populations on the planet, Mexico is a land of vast beauty and a culture that is uniquely its own.
In Mexico, Ramona had learned from her past mistakes and made sure to confirm her job would be waiting for her the day she arrived in Oaxaca. It was another university gig, which is exactly what she had wanted. After being spoiled in Chile and Peru with flexible and shorter schedules, she had moved up in the world of teaching and had made nine-hour teaching shifts a thing of the past for her.
After getting settled in her job, Ramona made some friends who took her to all the places she wanted to see. She even got some overnight stays in with parents of her friends, who gave her a warm family-style treatment that really showed her the way that Mexicans do hospitality; as in, comfortable and homely paired with lots of delicious food.
Ramona’s experience in Mexico marked the end of a seven-year journey overseas, where not only did she explore and discover many great regions of our planet but also built herself quite the résumé in the meantime.
