Join us on our inaugural visit to one of the world’s most dynamic cities, Mexico City. Filled with world-class museums, stunning modernist architecture, delicious food, and art-filled spaces, the city has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years.
On this 5-night program we will immerse ourselves in the culture of this spectacular city while also delving into political and social issues that have shaped Mexico. We’ll meet with individuals who work to improve conditions for the country’s disenfranchised and those who provide an insider’s perspective on issues that many of us have only viewed through a U.S.-centric lens.
