With only three more days until I get on a plane and leave for Chile, I am finishing my preparations and packing. I am very excited but also nervous. It is going to be very different from what I am used to and I know that I am going to miss my family and friends back home. I wonder what it is going to be like to live with a family who I have never met with no one familiar around. Still, I know that it will be a great experience. I am very excited to begin the Spanish classes in the college to improve my Spanish through more formal classes. I am also very excited to see what the schools are like and meet the children. I am happy that I received a new camera for my birthday so I will be able to take lots of great pictures of all of the sites that we are going to see so that I will remember it for a very long time. This is going to be an amazing experience and I am so glad that it is almost here. Now to get back to the headache of packing and getting ready.
