Update on the whole Santiago stuff

Okay, not that I feel that important but I have gotten a lot of questions from some of you about me moving out of the country. And I figured it would probably be easier to answer them on here so that I don't have to repeat myself a billion times! (More like twice, but whatever...)

I've actually been thinking about moving to Santiago for about a year now (if not longer) and I was just kind of waiting to get school out of the way before I could do anything about it. Since I graduated in April, I just had to pick a good date to go! I am hoping to stay for a few years in Santiago at least but it will all depend on things once I get down there. I think that eventually I'd like to get more school done but right now I'm looking for some good experiences. I am currently working on getting TEFL Certified (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) so that I can get a better job. I don't have a job yet but I don't think it will be too hard to find one.

I'll be living with Tia Rosi, she's the aunt of one of my good friends, Geraldine Lara. She lives en La Cisterna (calle El Parron) for those of you who know where that is. And don't you all fret, I'll be updating my blog lots and I won't fall off the face of the earth! I am really excited about it all and just want to get down there! If you have any other questions, pregunteme no mas!

I guess I should've read farther down before asking questions. Good for you! Have so much fun! I know you love to cook - so maybe if you are able to learn to cook protos con riendas, will you give me a good recipe? I am DYING to make it. I've tried several and they are not even close to being as sabrosa as the Chileans make then. Mmmmm......

Good luck. We love you!
