I’ve sat patiently waiting for this day to come, the day a plane will take me from the familiar comforts of my homeland to Valparaíso, Chile. Since I left Minnesota last semester, I’ve been counting down the days until I would set foot in Chile. Finally, the countdown is over and I am terrified/ecstatic. The next four and a half months will be scary and full of new adventures, but I can not wait to experience them.

While in Chile I will be attending La Pontificia Catolica Universidad de Valparaíso. I’ll also be living with a host family and submersing myself into Chilean life. So, my goal is to post once a week to keep people updated. I also want to take a page out of a friend’s book and do a video once a month. Stay tuned for more posts!
