Momma's and Steve's Visit

We had a really great 9 days together, it went by extremely quickly though, almost within the blink of an eye. I have got to get used to time flying because it always seems to do that here. Here are some photos of our trip: Fisherman in Zapallar (the beach town we visited), "La Chascona" which is one of Pablo Neruda's homes, bike tour of santiago, me infront of awesome graffiti and mom&me. It was a really great trip!

Thanks so much for coming all the way out here to visit me Mom and Steve, it really was nice to have a little taste of home!

My mom and I talked this morning about what home is anyway. Home isn't a place i've decided. I have a home in Minnesota, but also one in Arizona(dad), in Pennsylvania(school), in California(ryan) and now in Chile. So instead of associating a certain place with home, I just have to carry my "home" around with me on my shoulders.. "wherever i lay my hat, is home"

Hope you all had a nice weekend as well!

Miss you!

Sounds like you had an incredible 9days! And your mom is so right. Home is always with you, when you have people who love you. Enjoy your Chilean Home.
