I just spent my morning making Canadian pins for my exchange. I made little ribbons with pennies or nickels in the middle. So altogether 30 penny pins and 10 nickel pins (I'm to cheap to give up all my tip money from work, haha.) A couple of other Outbounds have also made these but I am very proud of mine! Also a Rebound suggested making pins out of beer caps, don't know how Rotary would feel but hey, beer is practically Canada's national drink!
Also I have to say that I ate alligator, yes it's been 4 months as a non-vegetarian and I ate alligator.. I guess I'm ready for anything in Chile, even a completo (giant Chilean hot dog) or an asado (meat bbq).
I now have 34 days until I leave for Chile, 5 weeks from today I will have been in the country for almost 2 hours! I still have a lot to do before I leave but luckily I have all really important stuff out of the way. Already 2 out of the 11 Outbounds have left to go to their countries, we're all slowing starting to leave to go on our own adventure and year abroad and have our own once in a lifetime experience!
