Mexico - Academic Life

One of the (many) perks of academic life is the opportunity to situate oneself to teach in different places and work with many different really nice people around the world if that's something of interest. It certainly is to me, and in a dozen years in the biz I've had the good fortune to be able to teach in Mexico on numerous occasions, in Lithuania a couple times, Taiwan & China a few times, and pretty soon Australia.

Anyway I just arrived a couple days ago in Guadalajara to supervise MSU's 3-week Summer Law Program at the Universidad de Panamericana. Here are a couple shots, at the U.P. campus and the hotel, with these beautiful flowering jacaranda trees you see everywhere here.

Anyway, 3 weeks is a long time away from home and family, but there are worse ways to make a living. As a colleague says, it beats roofing in Texas....
