Once upon a time, there was a 17 year old girl

Who saved all her babysitting money to finance a summer trip to Mexico in 1970 to “study Spanish.” Here she is, standing atop a great Aztec pyramid. The first of many travel adventures she would enjoy, but probably the most memorable because she was the most impressionable.

She would keep her souvenirs and pictures neatly archived in a photo album. She only wished she was that organized for all her later trips.

She lived in a local home with a nice family. Three other young American girls were her roommates that very hot summer of fun!

Back then, not all our film pictures came out well, but we kept them anyway.

She took the picture above; she’s not in it obviously.

Her hosts in Saltillo.

The young girl with her assigned student mentor. Her beautiful Mexican bag is behind her. Despite the heat, she decided to sport a short haired wig this day, just for fun.
