Things I did in this research include: labeling some of Mexico’s geography on a map to obtain a further understanding of the settings in Pobre Ana, recording different populations of several prominent Mexican cities for background information, and researching ten different tourist attractions in Mexico to strengthen my knowledge about Mexico’s economy and its culture.
This project introduced some of the Spanish culture, and it helped familiarize me with some of the settings in the novel Pobre Ana. Labeling a map introduced me to several significant Mexican cities such as Guadalajara, Mexico City, and Tepic. I gained so much knowledge about the cultures of Mexico and what makes Mexico what it is today. For example, the remnants of the Aztec and Mayan civilizations that once inhabited parts of Mexico. I did not know much about Mexico’s geography beforehand. Two places I’d enjoy visiting in Mexico are the Chichen Itza ruins and Sayulita, Nayarit. Now that I know more about the Mayans, seeing Chichen Itza in person would be very interesting. I’d also love to travel to Sayulita because it’s a quaint, little town with beautiful beaches.
