My initial intention was to try and stay in New York for three months, but getting a job had proven hard to come by, and to stay an extra month would take all my savings, meaning that I was looking at the option of forfeiting Mexico all together. And god I was needing some sunshine.
I was looking tired and run down, plus the job I got was not offering me enough hours. I spent valuable time deliberating, but in the end I realised that I would have to concede defeat and come back next year. In the end it turned out to be a recon mission, but I still think that six weeks is sufficient time.
