Program 523a: Language Vacations; Ex-Pat Mexico City; YOLO Los Angeles

Release Date: 09-12-2020


An American ex-pat tells us why he's made Mexico City his home for the past 25 years and how the Mexican capital is becoming a magnet for people from around the Americas. We'll also look at the fun things you can do only in Los Angeles, when the city gets back to its own version of normal again. And a language buff recommends the benefits of studying a new language overseas.
