This blog may not be big enough to fully describe last week’s experience being part of the UDG Mural project in Guadalajara, you really had to be there.
Beyond working with the best team, supported by a fantastic group of planners, backed by a big leagued sized educational institution you never hear about, and invited to work with more than 100 highly motivated professors who give it their all for an intense week, there is this thing that has happened at the end of each visit to UdG.
Even having experienced it before, it still takes our breath away.
This outpour of genuine appreciation, 30 minutes of hugging, cheering, and an insane barrage of photo requests.
And then when they start cheering you to out on a jersey in the gift bag…

They really like us ;-)
And we do them.
Anyone who talks about Mexico solely informed by Fox News or social media sprays knows nothing of the hard work ethic, the generous spirit, and the warmth I feel each time in Guadalajara.
This is easily the best work experience I have ever had. And I got to the bottom of the post without even mentioning these…
Mucho gusto, Mexico.
