That’s where the present Guadalajara was founded on February 14, 1550, near where the Teatro Degollado now stands. Guadalajara finally prospered and in 1559 was declared the capital of Nueva Galicia province. The city, at the heart of a rich agricultural region, quickly grew into one of colonial Mexico’s most important population centers. In July of 2015, I moved to Guadalajara, Mexico. Since then, I’ve been living south of the border and teaching at the American School Foundation of Guadalajara. It’s been a huge change in teaching position, in climate and has been filled with new adventures with new friends. This section includes blog posts about the move.

In July of 2015, I moved to Guadalajara, Mexico. Since then, I’ve been living south of the border and teaching at the American School Foundation of Guadalajara. It’s been a huge change in teaching position, in climate and has been filled with new adventures with new friends. This section includes blog posts about the move, life in Guadalajara, nearby travels and my favorite, a few posts about the FM4 Paso Libre, a shelter for migrants in transit and refugees where I volunteer in Guadalajara.
