Every week hundreds of people board coach buses in Chicago and travel to Mexico.

WBEZ's Linda Lutton used to live in Mexico with her family, and has taken the two-thousand mile trip there nearly a dozen times. On her most recent trip to Michoacán - where her husband's entire family lives - she brought a tape recorder along.

Chicago to Mexico, by Bus won The Little Mermaid award at the 2014 Third Coast Competition. It was produced by Linda Lutton with editor Cate Cahan for WBEZ, Chicago.
