Another week of classes has ended and thankfully it was less stressful than the first. I still have a lot to prepare for. But rather than stressing about that while at work, I instead spend my time decorating my classroom. It might not be the best use of my time, but it is certainly more fun. I’ll bring my camera next week so I can take pictures.
In other news:
1. Empecé mis clases de castellano la semana pasada! In case you were wondering, Castellano is the word they use for Spanish, rather than Español. And here, they don't capitalize languages. Anyway, I started my Spanish classes this past week! A friend of a friend is teaching me. We meet two days a week for two hours at a time.
2. I’ve been in South America for 6 months!! To celebrate, here's a picture of a pig wearing galoshes.
3. My niece, Ella turned 2!
4. Last weekend I was excessively thrilled to find nutmeg in the grocery store. My favorite find of this weekend? A Brita water filter. I had never seen them here before so I sort of assumed they didn’t have them. But on Saturday, my friend Karin suggested we go to Jumbo. For those of you who don’t, Jumbo is basically a Walmart on steroids.
The place was huge. The only downside was that half of the population of Chile was there. (Yes, that was a hyperbole.) Exaggeration or not, there certainly were a lot of people there. But I left with a Brita water filter so it was totally worth all the invasions into my personal space.
Okay it’s lesson planning time. I guess I better get used to this.
