Hey guys! Welcome to American Expats, a new series that shows you what expat life is like in cities around the world. Next up: Laura, a freelance writer and blogger who has been living in Mexico City for two and a half years. Here, she talks about celebrating the Day of the Dead, learning Spanish, and where to find the best street food in the city.
I’m Laura and I’m originally from New York. My boyfriend, Luke, and I have been living abroad since we graduated college in 2010. Mexico City is home number five after living in New Zealand, Australia, South Korea, and the UK.
I moved here two years ago to get serious about freelance writing (the cost of living is much lower than New York!). In that time I’ve managed to turn my blog into a full-time job and work with some amazing publications both online
