Hacendado Sorensen

Starting on February 4th I will be embarking on a 5 Hacienda tour in Mexico till the 17th. Late in 1997 Starwood (Westin, W, St. Regis, Sheraton hospitality managment and holding company) bought and renovated 5 dilapidated 17th century Haciendaa in the Yucatan.
Hacienda Puerta Campeche
Hacienda Santa Rosa
Hacienda Temozon
Hacienda San Jose
Hacienda Uayamon
Killy and Meagan (sometimes Adolph) used to rib me about being a little too "La Raza" back in the day but I am seriously very excited about this trip and it's convergence of my interests. Considering how much money I spent and time spent to learn about Mexican Colonial history I have done very little with it or nurtured this interest since college. Other than visiting the Hacienda outside of Guanajuato I have been to no others. The plus side is that I get paid and will be coddled in the lap of luxury. The other bonus is that they are very close to a spattering of Mayan Ruins such as Chicen Itza. I get giddy thinking about it. I am going to spend the next few weeks polishing my history of Mexican Hacienda, Encomienda, and Cast systems.
