Don't have much to write this week...The pics are really it for now 😊. Getting busy with school. Great day at the beach today (yesterday) 😊. Kurt is playing soccer with new friends and I am home...trying to unpack, but addicted to the internet as it keeps me connected. We got to watch the MU-KU game last night with Chilean pals (all wearing black and gold😊--I was sad about the loss but enjoyed the aftermath of card playing. I guess some things are universal.
We are settling into our new place. I finally unpacked all the suitcases today and it feels great--we are no longer nomads (until April/June breaks😊. Speaking of the 1st breaks...we have decided to do San Pedrom the 1st long weekend we have in April and Machu Picchu on the 2 week trimester break in June. Can't wait!!!
One last note...I keep looking around in disbelief that we actually live here now. I have always said that I wanted to move to another country and learn another language--mostly I just wanted to be by the ocean... This is finally it. I am really happy here. Mom, don't worry!!!
Kurt and MiguelMiguel is Alison's Chilean fiance...he has been very helpful in terms of finding our place, getting into the club for free :) and Amistad (friendship:)
Sam & NicoSam is the one who I had the most contact with before I came. She basically hired me. She is now teaching 3rd grade at our school. She is from the Jersey shore and married a lovely Chilean guy (Nico) in January. She/They are really fun and super great friends already!
Headed to the partySome rich guy's house in Hornitos. We had a little BBQ there after a long day at the beach. He was nice but sort of a creep :)
Nearing sunset at HornitosOne of my many favorite things about Chile is the fact that the sunsets on the Pacific ocean!!! This was an hour or so away from sunset but you get the point :)
Fat Tuesday!!!Some of my new friends didn't know what Fat Tuesday was...so, as I am always looking for an excuse to eat and drink a ton with good pals, Kurt and I cooked a feast (and drank a lot:) to celebrate Fat Tuesday. This was a pic of the yummy bean, shrimp, sausage, veggies and rice we had!
