Is it inappropriate to talk about money on a blog?
Anyway, life sure isn't all bad. Pepa (the money-racker-in-er of the family) and I recently went camping with two of our favorite people near Pisco Elqui in the north of Chile. We ate lots of chocolate, baked in the blazing hot sun and swam in a freezing river (snow melt). And it was great. Way too great, because we didn't want to go home.
Maybe it was because we were so hungry, but this pastel de choclo quickly became one of my favorite things in the whole world. Oh, and the watermelon juice. Oh. My. God.
|frozen watermelon juice, ensalada chilena and a pastel de choclo. sooo very yummy.|
As I mentioned, the river was freezing, but the sun was so strong that taking a little dip every once in a while was absolutely necessary to survive. Yeah. it's that extreme. YEAH.
And then we came back to a short work week. Gotta love those short work weeks.
So here we are back in our little seaside town, looking for a new apartment.
Big updates, people.

Also, due to the whole five years thing, I've decided to apply to medical school in Vina.
I'll keep you all updated on how our plans go.
I told you it was big.
