Today’s the day…

I wasn’t to hip on the blog idea, but at long last, I’ve decided that it might be a good idea. “might” being the key word there…I’m going to go ahead and apologize ahead of time just in case this bores you to tears.  I hope that’s not true, but you never know.  On the flip side, if this becomes the highlight of your day for the next three months, you are very welcome.  I hope the latter proves to be true.

To those of you who don’t know, I’m going to be spending this semester in studying and traveling through South America.  Home base for me is going to be in Viña del Mar, Chile which means vineyard by the sea.  Sounds great, yeah? To save you the trouble of googling it, just put your pinky above the dot that says Santiago, and you’ll be pretty close to where Viña is located.Image

As you probably guessed by the name Vineyard by the Sea, I am gonna be living real close to Pacific.  Which, not gonna lie, will be very nice to wake up to every morning.

I hope throughout the next three months I can make you fall in love with South America as much as I am sure that I will.

Also, I know that the title of this is a little weird, but I had absolutely no idea what to call this.  So, I decided that i would name it the first two words that popped into my head….tulips and watermelons.  Don’t ask me why those are the first words that I thought of because I’ve nary a clue.

2 words I learned: viña = vineyard, watermelon = sandía; cultural observation: The entire country of Chile is located right beside the sea, the chileans place a great deal of importance on the beauty of sea
