That's neat - hope she's having an awesome time out there.
As for me, I'm pretty sure that traveling to Mexico will be in the distant future (if ever). To me, though, that's probably a good thing so I can plan better for it. If you'd ever be up for visiting there, let me know!
Anyway, I hope you've been well from the time of your return from your relatively recent trip to China! Would love to catch up via phone sometime - whenever it works for you, that is.
