Yesterday was by far, my favorite day! Horseback riding in the Andes was absolutely breathtaking. The scenery was impeccable and the weather was perfect. When I notice the day to day relaxed pace of the Chilean lifestyle I constantly wonder, “How?” Horseback riding was really an opportunity for me to experience that sense of relaxation. I had a scheduled time period that was dedicated to trotting along a beautiful mountain without a care in the world. It was one of those moments that you want to remember for the rest of your life. My horse, Filipina, and I got along so well. She definitely had a fiesty horsenality but once I figured her out, we had a great time!
Today Ecela was different because we changed teachers! It is nice to get to know different professors but I think I could have really benefitted from working with the same teachers a little bit longer. Spanish is going well and I hope it sticks with me after I return home.
After our classes, we went to Cerro Santa Lucia, which is where Spain took over the country when they fought hundreds of years ago!
