Horcón and those pesky silent “H’s”

Horcón and those pesky silent “H’s”

Horcón is pronounced, “Orcone,” and so that is how I spelled it when Rossy told me where we were going. It wasn’t until we arrived and I saw the name written on a sign that I realized my mistake. It’s a legitimate mistake in my defense! I’m a horrible speller even in English, let alone in Spanish with silent letters.

Anyways, Rossy, Manuel, and Bastial (my host…cousin?) ate at a seafood…

New Home and Twenty One

New Home and Twenty One

image

So there is something important that this blog needs to know. I changed host families. I did this for several reasons but the main one is that Paty took me out to a restaurant with her friends. They all drank a lot and one of them drove us home. I felt unsafe and trapped cause it was my first night in the country and there was a majorly huge language barrier. I was really upset about it so I let…

Completos and Musical Families

Completos and Musical Families

This is my randomness post.

I saw this family several days ago when walking to the mall. They were singing and playing and it was really cute!

I found some incredible coffee at a little shop called La Tentación.

Here is a street market. We saw it after a long day at the Botanical Gardens and we were hungry so the fruit looked especially delicious.

We ate at a place called El Guatón. And the…

Chile’s Botanical Gardens

Chile’s Botanical Gardens

Yesterday, my friends and I went adventuring in Chile’s Botanical Gardens. Even in the wintertime, the place is beautiful! The trees are magnificent and the wildflowers exotic and colorful.

This tree looks exactly like a gigantic pineapple.

The “Campoos” of Aldolfo Ibáñez

The “Campoos” of Aldolfo Ibáñez

The University is situated halfway up a mountain overlooking the city and the ocean. The view is breathtaking. Also, about the title of this post; Chileans pronouns “campus” as “campoos” and it cracks me up every time! DSCN2933

The architecture of the campus is fascinating! It’s like a maze and sort of reminiscent of Hogwarts. I suspect that the ramps move around occasionally because it’s so easy to get…

The Beauty of Viña

The Beauty of Viña

The university gave us “gringos” a tour of the city. I took a lot of photos because it is beautiful here and I like photographing beautifulness. I also met a lot of the other U.S. students and they all seem quite nice. I’m looking forward to making more friends from all over the world these next four months.

The mist over the ocean hides the city line and the sun on the water sparkles like fluid…

First Impressions of Viña del Mar

First Impressions of Viña del Mar

Chile is beautiful. I flew in yesterday morning and my first view of the country was from the airplane window. I saw the mountains. They are so huge and majestic!  I wish I had a picture but I didn’t think of it at the time.

DSCN2528

We landed in Santiago and took a bus to Viña del Mar. Our host families picked us up and my host mom’s name is Patti and she’s really nice. She doesn’t speak any English so…
