Beautiful Mexico

This post is dedicated to the beauty of Mexico.

Mexico is an incredibly diverse country and I’ve been fortunate enough to see so many different places!  I love nature, so here are the coolest nature pics I’ve taken over the course of the semester.

DSCN1340flamingos at Celestun:  gotta love these beautifully awkward (or awkwardly beautiful?) animals.

So… now that I’ve bombarded you with a million pictures, I hope you have a sense of how beautiful the nature here in Mexico is.  Pictures can’t do it justice.

Hasta Luego
