Salsa, tequila, corazon, cerveza, muy bueno

¡Buenos días! from Mexico

Right now I’m in the half way of my one semester long exchange studies in Mexico City, Mexico. So far I have enjoyed my stay here and I see no reason why I wouldn’t enjoy the rest of the year too.

On my free time I have explored the country by traveling as much as possible. Besides Mexico City, one of the world’s biggest cities with around 21 million inhabitants in the metropolitan area, Mexico has a lot to offer. I have seen a lot of amazing things, for example colonial cities, paradises on the beach, volcanoes, etc.

School is very different from TAMK. I have three courses taught in English, one course in Spanish and one course about Spanish language and Mexican culture. My favorite is definitely Spanish language course and I feel that I have learned a lot since I came here. After all I’m living in the largest Spanish-speaking city in the world.

With the headline I’m of course referring to Anders Nilsen’s song “Salsa Tequila” which I haven’t heard here in Mexico, but I guess it was/is a hit in Europe, and it’s funny because it consists of many familiar (or everyday) words for me.
