Alright so how do I go about updating everything i’ve done in the past 4 months without writing a novel? I’m sorry, but I’m going to half to summarize most of it. I’ll do my best to include as many details as I can without boring you all to death. If anyone ever reads this, that it. Also, if you have facebook and want to see my pics from chile, search for Mimi Catalàn Burmeister and add me.
Mkay, let’s do this:
Friday, September 10: this was kind of a waste of my school day haha. To celebrate September 18 (which is like 4th of july), the entire school had all of these BBQs with all of these Chilean foods. It was so delicious(: however one of my friends decided that she wanted to go home and put normal clothes on (instead of her uniform) cuz a lot of other people had normal clothes on. And she wanted me and Karen (my best friend) to go with her. However, she lives an hour away by bus. So I spent two hours traveling (and I had to pay like 12 bucks) so her to change her pants. That was a waste of my day. But when we got back to the BBQ thing there was empanadas, French fries, candy apples, churripan, sopaipilla, cotton candy, etc. gahh it was soooo good! So after eating like everything haha, my friend Karen and I left early and hung out at the portal (which is the mall).
Saturday, September 11: let’s see I started out the day going to my three hour dance class. That was fun. Haha I enjoyed the jazz part of it, but I didn’t particularly like the ballet part. Oh well I only went to it like three or four times. After class I packed a bag and my family and I went to Pucon for the weekend. We didn’t leave until like 8 at night though so we got there around 9:30 or 10. Then we went to a restaurant for dinner and we all had French fries(: After I shared a room with Javi and her friend Anto for the night.
Sunday, September 12: We drove around Pucon and looked at the beach and the little market for a bit first. I also saw two of my classmates in the street and talked to them for a bit. After we drove to the ‘termas’ which are like nature’s hot tubs(: so the whole family swam (is that the right word?) around for a bit and it was rather relaxing. Afterwards we had lunch and drove home.
Monday, September 13: Seeing as it was my first official day of vacation (yeah we got the whole week of for Independence Day) it was rather necessary to sleep in late. Then I spent the night at my best friend Karen’s house.
Tuesday, September 14: I stayed at Karen’s for the day, then we walked to the mall and hung out there for a bit. After we caught up with her mom and aunt and went to the centro to do some more shopping. Then Karen’s mom dropped me off at the university for my theater class. After class, at like 10 at night, I took the bus home by myself and got home safely. Go gringa!!
Wednesday, September 15: ooh fun day(: this day I went back to Pucon but this time with Karen and my other best friend Silvi. So first we took a taxi to the bus station and then an 1 ½ bus ride to Pucon. When we got there we had lunch and shared this typical Chilean dish called Churrillana. That’s probably spelled wrong. Anyways, it’s delicious and has French fries, onion, chicken, beef, eggs, and bread. IT’S SO DELICIOUS and I’m going to have to make it when I go back to the states. So then I also got my ears pierced again(: and for like 6 bucks too haha. It was all legit though. Afterwards we walked around Pucon and looked at all the shops and markets and bought ice cream and rented this little bike thing. It was so funny. Then we finally had to go back and I got home around like 9 or 10.
Thursday, September 16: pointless day. I literally did NOTHING all day haha. Buu gringa. However at night my cousins came over and I played cards with my sister and cousins haha.
Friday, September 17: this might’ve been another pointless day. What I’ve noticed is that when there are vacations and holidays, ALL of my classmates go to other cities. Or just like disappear haha. However we did hang the Chilean flag outside and I listened to the Chilean national anthem.
Saturday, September 18: INDEPENDENCE DAYYYY! Unfortunately I didn’t get to do much on this day. We went to Loncoche and had lunch with my family there. That’s it haha.
