I don't think that I have ever woken up so early as I did on Saturday morning. The excitement from the trip was running through me and let's face it, I was so anxious. Gathering all the last minute things and checking things off my list was of top priority, along with saying adios to my friends and family.
As a whole we came across some bumps on the flights to Chile but dealt with them the best way we know how. Just from the flights and the several hours we have been in Santiago I can tell that this trip is going to be incredible. We just need to stick together and fully support one another.
Santiago is a beautiful city with so many sites to awe at. I can already tell that this city and the people who occupy it are going to mold me into the professional that I want to be.
We had our first day at ECELA today and I loved it. I was nervous to be completely submerged into the language but it was exciting. I came here to learn what it is like to be an English language learner and that I am. Our first day was incredible. I'll put up pictures soon!!! Xoxox
Ciao mi amigas
