So after a short but fantastic trip to the US, I am back to the warmth of Chile. Even though it was a quick trip, only about 9 days. I felt that I was able to accomplish a lot. After the NYs eve party, it was so hard to say good bye to so many good people....But, when I make the move back to the US for good, I know that those people will be there and I look forward to that moment.
Getting back to Chile was fine, no problems with the flights or anything. But still, 11 hours of flights still goes long.......
My weekend was chill, just did some shopping for our upcoming adventure. Today, we bought the first round of bus tickets to the south of Chile. We leave for our trip on Tuesday night and then will return on Feb. 1st. This is what I moved to South America for! Here is a map detailing where we are going to go:
