In March of 2007, twelve UNC students and a professor went to
anajuato, Mexico as part of the first APPLES Alternative Spring Break
Trip Abroad. The group traveled to a number of cities in the state of
Guanajuato, the origin community for the majority of immigrants in
Orange County, NC. They met the families of immigrants in their hometowns
and participated in the work of a community foundation to learn about
the impact of migration. The following photos and essays by students
illustrate some of their experiences.
