Santiago de Chile | Travel

This summer I embarked on a wonderful journey across South America. After two weeks of service in Peru, my next stop was to study abroad in Chile for a month. I arrived in Santiago on Saturday May 31, 2014.  It was incredible to note all the similarities and differences as I crossed to different countries.  The first week was filled with many activities from running through the extensive city, to sight seeing, experiencing museums, and of course wine tasting. It was great to dive in to a place with such a rich history.
