First day in Chile was a success! So many things happened from the time I left my little haven of Buffalo! Let me tell you about my insane last 24 hours.
Planes. I have no problem with flying. I have flown multiple times with my family and by myself, but international flying is like nothing I have ever done. The flight from Atlanta to Santiago was nine hours, and I found that I could not fall asleep. We were given pillows, blankets, and also dinner and breakfast! It was really fun to have so many accommodations. It was long, but I made it!!
Host family...is amazing!! Mama Maria is great and she speaks a little English so that's super helpful for communication! Her son Ricardo is so funny, and his girlfriend is so sweet. My room is very nice, warm and comforting. The showers are super hot though! I wasn't expecting it and almost burned myself haha.
Overall, everything has been great so far! I am so excited to start new adventures... let the times begin!
