Tomorrow I’ll be heading to Austin with my awesome friend. We’ll see the sights and have some fun before I depart for Mexico on Wednesday.
I will leave Houston and take the 19 hour bus ride to San Luis Potosí, Mexico. I will couchsurf with someone who lives on the outskirts of the city and work on her farm. She has a lot of animals that need taking care of. I am looking forward to spending this time in nature with animals.
After my trip to North Carolina and now in Houston, I am really falling in love with dogs! By chance, there is a stray dog shelter very close to where she lives. So if I run out of things to do on her farm, I can volunteer at the shelter and give some unlucky animals some love.
The weather should be great – around 80F/27C with chances of thunderstorms everyday. In Houston it has been over 100F/38C every day I have been here. I’m looking forward to spending time outside in that great weather.
When I first started planning this trip, I really wanted my first experience in Mexico to be working on a farm. This isn’t exactly a pure farm, but still. I liked the idea of the gringo going to Mexico to work on a farm. And since I have lived in a city my whole life I am sure I will learn a lot. I can’t wait!
