Since we have last chatted a lot has happened. I really am trying to mentally appreciate what I am doing and how proud I am of how far I have made it. I have climbed the Andes Mountains and seen the amazing coast. I also have had some time for reflection and discovering myself.
Let’s talk about these mountains first. There are no words to describe them but I will try. That was one time in my life I felt completely small and powerless. And you know what? I was okay with that. It was so breathtaking and amazing. I had the most amazing time and had a meditation time as well. I really reflected about the trip and the fact of everything I had overcome in my life. I have really done well.
Then we went to the coast today. God was it gorgeous. I think the best part was honestly Pablo Neruda’s house. I loved the way he lived and the designs. He had ship carvings and mermaids all over and I was in love. Then we went and had lunch (so much food). Then went and explored all along the sea. Just was an amazing weekend.
I also found something else amazing in the past week. True Friendship. I have become really close with one of the other girls on this trip. We both have similar histories and passions. We get along like ying and yang. As a person who struggled to make girlfriends in high school and who is not the most typical girl herself I really did not expect to make any friends on this trip. Sure glad I was wrong. Here’s some pictures of us living it up in Chile.
Well that's all for now. Definitely missing home but most definitely embracing my last 12 days in Chile. Adios till next time.
