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.
flamingos 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.
