Going to Mexico

115 pages1 hour


Going to México provocatively probes the side of México not often seen by visitors, the small pueblos, and provides a humorous, but at times, poignant perspective. In his Peace Corps memoir, David H. Greegor offers personal accounts of not only the life of a volunteer, but the lives of the Mexican people. You will read about the hilarious side of the Mexican bus system, Christmas in one extremely poor community, the profile of the author’s Mexican papá and a glimpse of the life of another volunteer. This book will make you laugh as well as cry.  

Going to México evokes reasons why so many people love México and why living there changed his life forever. From the introduction David writes, “I remember very vividly one night walking to downtown Querétaro and my wife, Sonya, saying, ‘We probably will never have life this good again.’ And even though I had been working all day in a small village and was beat, I could only agree with her. And I still do.”
