Emily´s Post

This post is long overdue and I am sorry Em! My friend Emily asked me a while ago to post pictures of common things in my life here in Chile to help her visualize them. So here you are Em!

Here is the subway station El Parron where I wait in the mornings to see just how crowded that darn train is going to be. Between the hours of 8 and 10, you can expect to be PUSHED on. Love public transportation!After my subway ride, I get off here, Santa Lucia. The tall building with the mirror windows is where I work--all the way at the top on the 26th floor.
Though it doesn´t look like much, here is the desk I work at as a Research Associate for Albagli Zaliasnik. They are jewish lawyers who work with trademarks. Kind of interesting I suppose. There website is here.

Though my job can be boring sometimes, I do have quite the view from the window.


After work I generally take the bus home (depends on my mood) and that can also prove to be interesting. This picture was taken on New Year´s Day which explains why no one was on the bus and the fact that I was brave enough to take a picture. Not the safest form of transportation...


Here is my view from the bus as I go home. No need for why I shouldn´t be taking out my camera on the bus I think.
When I get off the bus, Pablo is always waiting for me to walk me to his house. This was actually taken outside his house though because I probably shouldn´t pull out my camera at the bus stop either.

This is the street that Pablo lives on. Notice that there is no shade whatsoever! Sometimes I feel like I will die before getting to his house at the end of the street!


And finally I get to Pablo´s house! Where his Mom is always waiting...

Sometimes in the evenings I go with Pablo to class just to spend that extra time with him. This is the building where all of his classes are.

And then off to my home and to my room to sleep!

Wow. I feel like I just spent a day with Becki! I'm still totally jealous of the lack of snow. Now be honest. Did you make your bed and put your scriptures on it just for the sake of the picture? I'm guessing it's usually unmade with a grocery-store romance novel sitting on it. Be honest Becki!

Hey Bianca- I love the brilliant shade of royal blue for your bedding. Chile looks pretty cool. It's fun to get a little glimpse of your life.

I loved that! Thank you. now I can visualize what you won't be doing now that you are going back to Idaho. WHICH MEANS I HAVE TO SEE YOU!!!!! Sad for you, fun for me! I remember all to well what it's like to be engaged in different countries. Though it sounds like you may be apart for longer than 3 months. We won't talk about that. In any case, love the pics, love your narrative, and ooohh! love your silky blue bed spread. that's hot.
