Almost There!: Chile

Right now I'm trying out the Blogger Mobile app, so this post may look a little odd. Anyway, I'm in the airport with 6 other future, AFS 'Chileans'! Our plane leaves at around 11:00 pm, so we still have some waiting to do (This post was written at about 9:45 pm). I'm excited even though we don't get to meet out host families until Sunday. AFS, as we learned, likes its orientations. It is like a 7 - 8 hour flight to Santiago, la capital, so in reality the Chilean experience doesn't really start for awhile. Anyway, everyone is excited, a little tired, and a bit anxious - it's a perfect chemistry of nerves. 

More to come about Chile, my Host Family, and what I'm sure is going to be a lovely flight! 
*I misspoke - It turned out we got to meet our families on Saturday


  1. Me again :)
    I don't know whether you are still on the plane, but I wish you a great flight... And have a nice stay :)!
    Mucha suerte!

    Quedan unos 30 días para mí- pero no tengo una familia :(
    Hasta pronto...
    (Check out my blog, though it's in German...)

    1. Thanks! I read your blog - it looks wunderbar. Don't worry about the host family - I only received my host family a week before I left.
