I was lucky enough to get to spend two weeks in colorful central Mexico. I wandered among the colorful patchwork buildings of hilly Guanajuato, peered into the old silver mines and gargantuan church of Valenciana, felt the chaotic bustle and swirl of Mexico City, and cocked an ear to hear the mystic messages from another time that sing in the wind at Teotihuacán. Read about these experiences as well as how I searched for medical supplies from local pharmacies, handled a case of Montezuma’s Revenge, and calculated an insulin dose for (mm-mmm!) cow’s brain tacos.
