Chile October 2015

Untitled

We just took a trip to Chile for our humanitarian calling in our church.  It was a beautiful city to walk around and experience their way of life.  Most of it felt pretty American, minus my lack of Spanish.  It was safe, clean, and you always find some fun surprises.

Hotel Bonaparte

Big fort in the middle of the city where you can climb to the top.  I just wouldn't recommend it in heels.

I'm sure Mat wrote my name somewhere, I just can't find it.

Baskets with wheels are a bonus.  Especially, when you probably should have grabbed a cart, but thought you were just grabbing a few items.

Fish market. Believe me when I say it smells like fish.

Fortune Tellers.  I'm very happy they all decided to coordinate.

Complatos are not for me, but I'm sure some picky kid will eat them.

Jackpot on the motorcycles, take your pick!

Earning a little extra cash cheerleading during stoplights.

Lunch to go, or on wheels--these kabobs are probably pretty tasty I'm sure.

Guitar maker shop.

And yes, we now own our 6th string instrument and now a stool to sit on.  All lovely.

We always meet new friends, meet the Gouldings.  They are from Hurricane and they speak English.

We met up with Andrea's cousin Jorge.  He was kind enough to pick us up from our hotel and take us to a real Chilean restaurant.  I had the spicy beef and Mat had some Pork guts.

We topped it off with some canned peaches in peach juice and barley.

Oscar went with us to 4 different hospitals searching for the needs of the people throughout the week.  We are hopefully going to be able to help a couple of them.

I am especially interested in the pediatric hospital.

The city and the people were delightful!
