Adventures of a Chicano Spanish Teacher, Mexico and Beyond
By: Sonny Morin
About the Book
Adventures of a Chicano Spanish Teacher, Mexico and Beyond serves as a memoir of sorts, covering the travel adventures Sonny Morín began as an undergrad and continues throughout his life. The stories in this book cover a span of thirty-some years, twelve years after his last adventure to Palenque and four years after my last adventure to Cozumel. He traveled to Jamaica, Alaska, Peru, and Palau in between the Palenque and Cozumel visits. The book is in three parts, Palenque, Cozumel, and the other locations.
The adventures begin with stories to Palenque, through Mexico and Guatemala including: Agua Azul, San Cristóbal de las Casas, Oaxaca City, Puerto Angel, Flores, and Tikal. Part two of the book includes travels to Cozumel and excursions to the mainland including: Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Chichén Itzá, and Holbox. While part three covers all additional locations.
A high-energy read, the book takes the reader right into the action of each adventure, each trip.
