Borderlinks Field Trip to Nogales, Mexico

images/bienvenidos.jpg On February 22, 2006 our Migration & Culture course took an educational field trip to Nogales, Sonora, Mexico,  led by the knowledgeable staff from BorderLinks, a Tucson-based non-profit organization dedicated to education about the US/Mexico border region.  BorderLinks tailored our full-day excursion to the theme of migration. The field trip added an innovative and exciting dimension to our course. Students each wrote up these brief reports about one or two key aspects that most impressed them. Enjoy!

Anna Lou, U.S./Mexico Border Zone: 36th and Thomas
Aaron Hazelett ,  Adventures at Ranch Market
Laura Szczublewski , Is Sunnyslope all that Sunny?
Phimonwan Wanna, Crossing the Border from Arizona to Thailand, at Wat Promkunaram
