On Sunday, the cohort and I had the opportunity to go to La Isla Negra, Valparaiso, and Viña del Mar. La Isla Negra is where one of Pablo Neruda’s (Chilean author) houses are located. The inside of his house was filled with many figurines and paintings. Although some of them seemed a bit strange to me, you could tell that these forms of art are what made the house. Without them, the house would be very bland and you wouldn’t be able to tell his personality. I appreciate the fact that he took the time to decorate his house according to how he felt and what he liked. One day, I hope to do the same with my house.
