Cachai?: Reaching the Sunset

I still remember arriving in Santiago, Chile with fear in every inch of my body. I barely understood the Chilean professors, I dreaded having to socialize in another language, and not having my family or friends there made me feel completely alone. That was the beginning. However, as time passed I became adjusted to life ...

Cachai?: Algarrobo

Hola amigos! Now a little word of advice for ANYONE who plans to study abroad in the future: always check your calendar and plan ahead of time. I had found out pretty last minute that October 28th to November 1st was an extended weekend due to two holidays (Reformation Day & All Saints Day); thus, ...

Cachai?: Frutillar

Hola amigos! I just got back from my three-day trip in Frutillar, a really small city located in the southern Los Lagos region of Chile. This city was a bit more to the south of Chile. If you kind of want an idea, the bus ride to Pucón the week before was about 8 hours. ...

Cachai?: Utilice Su Tiempo Bien

As the months and days reach closer to December, to my departure and return to the United States, anxiety and a sense of hurry and panic seeps in. It is not just the thought that I will be leaving soon that is tearing me apart, but doubts about whether I am fully taking advantage of ...
