Today was sort of a lazy day. The four of us walked around the university park a little and then they sent us on our way to go to the Confucius Temple. We decided to walk there because it was a nice day and we had nothing else to do. So about 30 minutes later (including some stops) we arrived. It was pretty…there were a few old red buildings, a half-circle pond with tons of turtles, and a running track in front. Kids in the middle of the track, in the field, were playing ultimate Frisbee. It was a nice, relaxing scene, and then we headed to the next block to see the south gate. It's the only gate left standing but it was closed, so we just took some pictures from outside and then walked around the area.
A most amazing thing happened – we found cheddar cheese! It was a small block for 150 and I was happy. Next we needed bread, so we started walking towards the train station, heading back "home". Along the way we found a huge mall, an Asian star signing things/taking photographs in the park, a couple of parks, and then a café!
We went in and they had baguettes for 35 each so we bought one to take back with us. Along the way we came across Tin Pan Alley and decided to try a taco. I thought it was going to be crunchy, but it was a soft taco, and I was disappointed. It was huge, though, I’ll give them that.
When we got back to the house, Bárbara and I cooked dinner (rice, chicken, salad – the Chilean salad (tomato, onion, olive oil, salt) was a hit!), drank some beer, and chilled out.
