It's nighttime and the city lights dimly illuminate the mountains as the plane descends.  Rushing through Customs, the officer stamps the student's passport to mark the beginning of their international journey.  For seven days over Thanksgiving break, eleven adventuresome Jesuit students embarked on an exchange trip to Guadalajara, Mexico for the first time in nearly a decade.
