May 27th, 28th, and 29th
These past few days were a blast! There really are not words in any language to describe how gorgeous life is in Chile! With that being said, I will rely on my photos to share just how delightful it is here!
The photos in the beginning show the scenic view of the Andes Mountains. I was in awe as I looked around! Looking at these mountains made me feel so relaxed- I have never seen anything like this before. Throughout my time in Chile so far, I have felt like I am in the background of a movie. Its so hard to believe that it is so real! The hike up the mountains was about 3.5 miles there and 3.5 miles back. Even though my legs are sore, it was so worth it!
The next few pictures show the house of Pablo Neruda, a famous poet who lived in Chile. Our group toured his house (it is now a museum) and explored all of his unique collections. His collections included seashells, instruments, and statues. Pablo Neruda's house resides on the Pacific Cost.
The next two photos show some of the street art in Chile. Isn't the art so colorful?!
The photos at the end show 1st grade students in a Chilean public school. There were about 40 students in one classroom. I was very impressed with the students knowledge of English! The students all joined together to sing a song about the days of the week. I really admired the way that this teacher taught because she used hand motions and visuals to help the students understand. Today, the teacher allowed students to cut and paste visuals of different kinds of toys (ball, toy airplane, train, and doll) into different rows. I enjoyed observing this 1st grade class!
