What I learned after being robbed at gunpoint in Mexico

When my family and I got robbed at gunpoint while on vacation in Mexico, money was hardly the first thought on my mind.

It happened at a cooking class outside of Oaxaca in southern Mexico recommended to us by family friends. One minute we were eating homemade mole, the next minute men with guns rounded the whole class up in a storage closet, tied our hands with zip ties and demanded our valuables.
