Ecela was particularly difficult today because we had a totally different teacher and it was set up a little differently. I can’t believe I made it through the first week. My Spanish has already improved tremendously and I am really enjoying learning the language!
We had another great lunch before walking to tour one of Pablo Neruda’s houses. It was awesome! Pablo Neruda is a really famous poet from Chile. La Chascona is the Santiago home of Neruda that he shared with his wife Matilde from 1955 until 1973. We got to walk through the home and had devices to listen to a tour in English. It was a really interesting story and the house was so artistic. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take pictures inside but it was incredible!
The girl in between Sam and I is our new friend Nicci, she is from Scotland and has been tagging along with us! I love getting to know her! I have asked every question in the world about Scotland and now I’m dying to go there to visit her one day.
After hanging out at Pablo’s, we had to find a place to watch the game! Chile played Australia in the World Cup! We met up with another Nikki (from Miami) and went to a restaurant in Bellavista. It was a great night watching the game and celebrating the win with the Chileans! The streets were packed and the people were going crazy!
