Way way back in 2007 when we were planning our trip itinerary, two of our best friends had decided to move to Chile for two years. Their mom is Chilean and she wanted them to grow up with some sense of Chilean Culture. We were planning our itinerary. Why not fit them into it? Chillan, Chile is a nice town, right?
When they left in '07, Siena and I would occasionaly say to each other "I can't wait to see Amy and Andrea." But it was too far away to think much of it. As we made our way east and east and finaly south, the suspense continued to build. In Easter Island we would constantly say, "How many more days 'till we see Amy and Andrea?" In Santiago, we couldn't even pay attention to the sites! Not that they weren't nice, but every few seconds we would squeal or say "I wish we were in Chillan right now!" The 5 hour train ride seemed to last for 10 million hours, but then we finally pulled into the station. Amy and Andrea were jumping up and down holding an orange and brown banner welcoming us to Chillan. We were sooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited to see them!!! We arrived on a Friday so we had that afternoon, Saturday and Sunday to play with them. No time was wasted, we started playing immediatley. We played non stop unless dragged somewhere against our own free will. Okay, okay, we did some things that we did like. Like yesterday, we had a day at school with Amy, gym and art. She also showed us the chapel at her school, it was actually quite nice!!!
We are having a great time here, so if we decide to stay for their next four months, don't be suprised!!!
