technical difficulties

Sorry guys, I am having trouble uploading photos because the internet is so slow. I hope to get them up sooner rather than later though!

Just as an update. we have spent the past two days exploring Viña del mar and Valparaiso. We also made our way down to some smaller beach towns called Reñaca and Concon. It is incredible how many people are out and about. I have never seen so many people in the same place at the same time!! And they are all over the beaches! It is nice to see so many families out together. Almost everyone on the beach is a family with kids (old or young) it is a really nice sight.

anyway, tomorrow morning we are getting up early and driving inland to a vineyard called Concho y Toro. We have been drinking excellent wine here! If you are a wine drinker, i suggest tasting some chilean wine. It should be a really relaxing weekend before meeting up with the whole group. I am really excited about meeting all of the other kids from the U.S - just from touching base briefly on facebook I can tell that they are going to be a really good group!

anyway, off to shower and then enjoy my last night here (at least for another couple of days)

Sending love from the wonderful country of chile,

vanessa!!

ps - both my dad and I got really sick yesterday with stomach issues. His were more digestive, but mine was more like sharp pains. we aren't sure if it is from the food or what, but hopefully we'll be back to good in no time!

Hi! I miss you but so glad you're having a wonderful time so far. Can't wait to hear more once the program gets started. I just updated as well so feel free to read my adventures. I forgot to add that I popped a squat to pee in a jungle. Oh Africa.

Hi my love... I am very happy that I have a way of tracking what you are doing ( besides in my own thougths)
I just wanted to tell you that I have now blogged a total of four times! This is very exciting for me ... and honestly it feels great. However, I am pretty sure that I am the only follower, which, from the way my blogs have been going, is probably a good thing. Anyway, I miss you alot! I am glad to hear that you are having a fun time! You can look at my blog if you want (you know the face I am making when I say that) you know the address ... it is the same as yours ( but with my name) ok I love you and I miss you !

- love
pooh :)
