Stars, Stripes, and little bit of Swing

The 4th of July has come and gone. You'd think that, in Chile, absolutely no one would care about the 4th because it's not their country. Right? Well, I still got a party for the 4th. Get a load of this. So, I walked into the institute in the morning like it was just another... Continue Reading →

Speaking Spinese

I'm still catching up on these blogs. Don't judge me. So last week has come and gone, so this post is going to be a quick overview it featuring the highlights. Vamos, chicos. As you know, I hang out in Valpo all day and don't get home until late. So, the other day I walked... Continue Reading →

We started with the goal of finding this breakfast place on Cerro Alegre, but the place no longer exists...So, we pressed on and ended up in a hipstery little restaurant for lunch. We got patio seats and the food was great. Since we... Continue Reading →

Speaking Spanglish

Thursday, I went on an aventura chilena with my amigo chileno, Jorge. I had met Jorge at the language exchange activity that the university had a couple weeks ago. He wanted to Skype to get some English conversation practice, but Skype hates me and it wouldn't work, so I suggested just meeting up.  So, we... Continue Reading →
