Una flor?

CHILE | Thursday, 24 May 2007 | Views [840]

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 is so terrible that it's reached the point that it's just amusing. The other day the professor started class by showing us a slide of a flower and repeating the phrase "una flor" (a flower). This was followed by an uncomfortable silence for what felt like 5 straight minutes while he intently stared us down as we contemplated this flower. He then proceeded to tell us just how spectacular this flower was while running the computer cursor up and down the length of the flower as though he was stroking it. I never really figured out what this awkward initial 5 minutes of class had to do with anthropology.
