It is beautiful here in Chile. The snow capped mountains are gorgeous. It is great to see where Armando has lived most of his life and to meet his family.
Armando´s family and friends are very welcoming and kind to me. His Mom and family and friends held a barbecue in my honor when I first got here. An aunt and a cousin brought me flowers and chocolates. It really made me feel good.
I am improving my Spanish every day as I hear it spoken around me and I try to speak what I know and what I learn.
We went to Cajon del Maipo yesterday (Me, Armando, Armando´s Mom and sister). We ate at a restaurant that had a view of the mountains. I had roasted chicken and a salad with some things I have never tried before. I don´t know what they are called even but the salad was good with lemon, salt and oil.
Today, Armando and I went to an artistic place. They had beautiful art works there of many different kinds.
The picture is from a park overlooking the city of Santiago, Chile. We went there the day before yesterday.
Until Next Time,
