Where I'm Staying!
Yesterday I received my housing description! I'm really thrilled because I will be staying in downtown Valparaiso, about a fifteen minute walk from my university. Many students in this program are staying the neighboring city of Viña del Mar, which is more of a tourist town and less historical than Valparaiso, so I'm pretty lucky! I will be living with a mother, Lilian, and her 16 year old daughter, Macarena. (Yup, like the song... Hey, Macarena!) The host mom's aunt and her son also visit often. They even have a dog "which is part of the family"! The description also says that, "They love to talk and meet as a family for every meal...On the weekends they visit their extended family." Sound familiar? :)
My address will be:
Depto 204 A
Feel free to send me snail mail, I'd really appreciate it!
Also, if anyone has skype my name is m+my last name.
