The international reunion and Tepoztlán

My first semester here (we're talking August - December 2010) I had a great group of international friends. They were all here as exchange students for one or two semesters. A lot met through orientation, I was lucky to meet them by coincidence more than anything, and others joined the group as time went one. On a pretty much weekly basis we'd explore the city, travel, celebrate birthdays, etc. It was a fantastic semester and the start of some great friendships. 

Those that was here as exchange students left after one or two semesters.  Some have been back for visits or internships, but we haven't all been together since that first semester. 

Earlier this month we had a mini reunion of international friends. Thanks to another wonderful coincidence, four of the "original group" were in the DF the same week: I haven't left, one moved back to work here, one came back to visit, and one was here for a week-long course. It was so much fun to be reunited, along with other friends and significant others that have joined along the way.

As an excuse to spend the day together, on Saturday we went to Tepoztlán, a pueblo in Morelos. We were a group of six people from six different countries: United States, Mexico, Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil and Germany. Not bad, huh? We had breakfast, climbed the Tepozteco mountain, had lunch, shopped at the market and thoroughly enjoyed each other's company.
