Arriving in Chile

After 3 days of treacherous rain, and minimal activity, it’s a perfect time to reflect on my first few weeks abroad. The first 20 days of my adventures abroad have been amazing and have revolved around a few different things; friendly Chilean people, new friends, public transportation, bread, and rain!

Kaley: pictures

It’s easier for me to upload pictures on kaleysmith.myphotoalbum.com so if you want to see my pictures, there they are! But here are a few example of what you’ll find there. It’s been pouring rain for the past 3 days, but it hasn’t rained here for like 3 years so it’s not so bad. My course schedule got pretty crazy after the first day because genetics (most important course) was cancelled for the semester so I had to redo everything, but I got it all figured out and so after […]
