I'm bringing my Croc knock-offs (made of a rubber-like resin). If you have ones without holes, this would be best. Amy

Cecilia Hunter Oct 23, 2015 at 09:05 PM

Will the storm require a postponement or cancellation of our planned trip?
Dawn Emerick Oct 23, 2015 at 10:17 PM

It seems like a reasonable thing to do.

Sylvia Tedesco Oct 23, 2015 at 07:49 PM

Thunderstorms are expected daily and 80 degrees. Any advice on wet shoes welcome.
Carolyn Uyemura Oct 23, 2015 at 10:50 PM

Jim and Carol from Olympia know a little Spanish. We've kayaked in Baja several times, lived with a family to study Spanish indepently in Pueblo and poked around Mexico a bit. I was born on November 2nd so this is special to Carol.

Katherine Donlon Oct 19, 2015 at 05:12 PM

Does anyone know whether bottled water is necessary or available?
Carolyn Uyemura Oct 19, 2015 at 07:04 PM

From previous experience Bottled water should be available from the program and from stores.
Katherine Donlon Oct 19, 2015 at 08:07 PM

Thank you so much, Carolyn.

Amy Alpine Oct 08, 2015 at 11:42 AM

Amy from Eau Claire, WI. I'll be traveling Minneapolis-Atlanta. I speak some Spanish and have been to both Oaxaca and Tlaxcala previously on my own so am looking forward to getting more info and being there during this wonderful holiday. I signed up for a double -- am wondering whether I will have a roommate or a defacto single!
Dawn Emerick Oct 09, 2015 at 12:46 AM

It's good to have experienced travelers among us! I signed up last month and asked about a single room but they said the single rooms were taken.

Carolyn Uyemura Sep 24, 2015 at 05:58 PM

Carolyn and Mike from Portland OR area are getting excited about this trip October 27-November 9. See you all then.
