Going home...

USA | Thursday, 28 Jun 2007 | Views [1011]

Time's up! Tomorrow I head back to the US of A and my love affair with South America will have to take a hiatus (though hopefully not a very long one). Although I'm sad that my year studying abroad has come to an end, I think I'm ready to go ... Read more >

Happy Meat is Good to Eat!

ARGENTINA | Tuesday, 26 Jun 2007 | Views [1617]

After yet another bland meal in the Casa Holanda, I have been hopelessly reminiscing about the weekend trip I took to Buenos Aires a couple of weeks ago. I just can't stop fantisizing about all of the culinary delights that the city has to offer. Sometimes ... Read more >

Rod Stewart is to Easter Island as Tom Jones is to El Conti.

CHILE | Wednesday, 30 May 2007 | Views [2848] | Comments [1]

My week long trip to Easter Island began with the appropriate apparel: adventure clothes. You know...extra-heavy-duty-gortex hiking boots, fannypacks, cowboy hats, and camoufloge bandanas, all of which feature super-duper-quick-dry technology. My travel ... Read more >

Ranting About the Infamous Transantiago

CHILE | Friday, 25 May 2007 | Views [1252]

Maybe you've heard of Transantiago. It's a new citywide bus/metro system that has recently been put into place. It has had so many flukes that supposedly it even made the national news in the US of A! I won't bore you with the details, but here is ... Read more >

CHILE | Thursday, 24 May 2007 | Views [829]

Classes at La Catolica are going ok. I've had a hard time getting excited about my classes this semester, which is weird for me because normally I'm enthusiastic about my classes at least at the beginning of the semester. My Chilean Anthropology class ... Read more >

A Briefing from La Presidenta de la SNP.
