Last week, Scott B. and I took a day trip to Valparaiso and Vina del Mar, where we were given tours of the facilities and resources that would be available to us if we were to live out there during our time in Chile. Valparaiso and Vina del Mar are just an inexpensive, yet comfortable 1.5-hour bus ride from Santiago. 


Let’s just say that moving out there is very tempting, but I’ll let the pictures do the talking. As of now, though, we have a lot going on in Santiago so we’ll stay here for the next few months.



The UTFSM campus is one of the prettiest university campuses I’ve seen…
