|Felicitaciones San Marcos,|
making it through to the Primera Division!
I have made some precious friends and outlandish mistakes! There have been times of elation and confusion. I have had both routine and adventure, mistakes and mischief. But best of all I have learned!! I have learned a language, a new way of expression, and a new way of understanding, I have learned a new way of life and of viewing the world. And I have learned this from people, people who have been open and generous, taking time to teach me and to share with me, people who have laughed at me and with me, who have both questioned me and understood me.
|And the delicious fresh fruit and veges available at every corner|
Looking forward to bringing home these new understandings, to share them with my students... because as great as this adventure has been for me personally, that was always the point, to enrich my teaching and the learning of my students. Keeping my eyes on the prize, I feel a real sense of satisfaction and appreciation.
I have down sized my apartment into to small bags that I will carry on my back for a month as I travel through Chilean Patagonia and Lake Ristrict, where I will no doubt encounter my first spot of rain in over 9 months!
Here are a few photos in tribute to favorite places and things I´ll miss! Chau Arica ha sido genial, gracias para todas por todo x
