One of the first things we're going to do when we leave Arizona in May to travel is study Spanish. We've always wanted to learn it and have taken a few years of classes in high school and college. So we decided our first stop while backpacking is going to be Mexico City.

We're going to be staying there for a month and have signed up to take Spanish classes at Frida Spanish School for the first two weeks as well as staying with a host family. If we like it, we'll continue there for another week or two. Then we plan to travel around Central America for a couple weeks before starting the next leg of our journey.
