The Wheels On The Bus - Teaching English In Guadalajara Mexico

By: Taylor Sands

I have been living in Mexico for almost eight months and I am still continuously surprised by life here.  When I first arrived in Guadalajara, there was so much to see and get used to.  The first major adjustment I had to make was the difference in meals and meal times. 

In the United States, we typically eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with dinner being a relatively large meal.  Here in Mexico, that is not the case.  The norm is to have something small in the early morning, perhaps before work or school.  Then around eight o’clock or nine o’clock, people typically eat a hearty breakfast.

Vacation - All I Ever Wanted - Teaching English in Mexico

Living abroad is one of the most exciting things that I have ever done. 

I had certain expectations about how my life would be once I made the move.  I thought that I would make enough money to live comfortably and travel to different cities near mine on the weekends.  However, this is not the case for me.  The school that I work at does not pay very much and it has become necessary for me to supplement my income with other teaching jobs.
