This week with Estelle and Jon has been an experience like no other. I have learned to make many recipes that I will be able to reproduce for friends and family at home. This was a wonderful experience for a solo traveler. I made many friends and enjoyed the warm sunny climate of central Mexico.

I came away with a new appreciation and growing confidence for all the diverse nuances...
