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 →
