Hey everybody! It has been a long time (I know), but I am in college so... enough said.
I am now done with my first semester (1/8!) of my college career and I am not lying by saying it flew by. I was pumped to see my family, if only for a couple weeks, and have an awesome holiday. Although to me that means relaxing, sleeping, and reading, I also spent some time outside the house—if only because I was physically forced to leave it. Hacienda Bustillos
In all seriousness, though, I had a great time! I only had three weeks of vacation because I signed up for Wintersession, so I am already back to Boston and its inviting weather. I spent about two of those weeks in Mexico.
Going to Mexico is always a bit of a shock. I tend to forget just how different it is living in the United States versus in Mexico. I got to see old friends and meet new people, as well as spend some much needed quality time with my siblings and extended family.
I don't think I ever posted on here the pictures I took about a year ago of Hacienda Bustillos, but you should be able to see them here. I was able to visit again, and was surprised to see the amazing progress. It was in ruins only a few years ago, and—as you can see from the pictures above—it looks near finished now!
The pictures below are of a vineyard at a different hacienda, or rather where the wine is produced. It was amazing to hear about the whole process from grapes to the moment it is ready to sell. I was completely astonished by the equipment used, as is probably obvious by the pictures I have included in this post.
