Around the world in 80 tales - Mexico

My name is Frances, I am from Mexico and I have been in Dunedin for three years.

I arrived to study my Masters of Wildlife Management and decided to stay longer because I liked it so much. I love the feeling of freedom and safety here and having this amazing nature just at a 20 minute walk distance.

I chose the Mayan Legend of the Hummingbird as my story because it’s a part of my country’s story which I feel connected to. I love the way that they described the hummingbirds as messengers of love and affection.

I have always told my dearest friends and family (especially now that I am so far away) that if they see a hummingbird flying close by, it’s me thinking about them and cherishing them with my heart.
