Thanks elgatoloco! K Valeria went to San Diego yesterday!


K Valeria is studying dentistry in TJ. She studied a lot of English with me before she ever went off to college. She has maintained all A's and B's in dental school and my dream is for her to open up her own clinic being able to converse with her future patients in English.

With that goal in mind, a while ago I asked for a sponsor and señor Elgatoloco was kind enough to sponsor her American visa! Thanks so much.

This past week she picked up her visa and yesterday she went to Old Town in San Diego with Betsy. Betsy speaks English really well, knows San Diego really well and was agreeable to showing K Valeria how to buy a trolley pass and take her to Old Town. I gave them cash to have lunch wherever they wanted (I suggested In and Out but forgot to ask where they ended up).



K Valeria says she loved the day. I thought I would share her first pictures.

She will be heading back to explore San Diego again soon, but we also have another plan that is in the works...she will intern with a dentist in the US, either this summer or next winter break. Cross your fingers and send the wish out to the universe everyone! Bajanomad Carl has gotten an OK from his dentist, now we have to figure out schedules since he is a very busy guy.


I am so thrilled that K Valeria can now add the USA to her memory bank!

Very cool!

A good friend of mine travels from Canada to Baja for dental work. Mexican dentists have a good reputation.

I missed seeing this post. K Valeria looks like she was having a good time. Great to hear she has an opportunity for an internship ahead of her. Mrs. EGL and I would welcome the chance to work on our rudimentary Spanish with her over lunch next time she makes it to town. :dudette:

Blanca you are really paying it forward! Safe travels to you and Les! :cool:

It looks like she and elgatoloco might meet up and he will show her around san diego! She studies so hard and has kept her GPA up straight through all these years so this is a well-deserved break. THANKS so much and take lots of photos for us.
