I also was able to view the lunar eclipse last night, I stayed up really late with two of my friends to watch it (ok, we dozed off quite a bit since it was 4:30 am), but it was pretty interesting to know that I was able to view the same eclipse as people back home were.
Time has gone by so fast here, I had my 4 month Chile-versary on Saturday... 4 months already!! Although sometimes I feel like I haven't achieved much on my exchange so far, as I look back through my journal, blog, and photos I have already done so much, but yet there's so much more in-store for me! I can't wait to make the most out of the rest of my exchange here, I already feel so at home in the country, I can't even imagine having to leave it.
Last Sunday we had a big Rotary meeting with all of the exchange students. We also got to meet two short-term exchange students from South Africa. Rotary also had a surprise for all of the Inbounds. All of a sudden they opened up the curtain and there on the windows were posters with photos on them. Everyone had photos from back home that their parents had sent - my photo was my dog, the biggest thing from home that I miss. Rotary also had letters for everyone that our parents had wrote for us. That was truly a worthwhile meeting, and it also gave us exchange students an opportunity to juntar after and hangout!
With my doggy Smeagol (yes from Lord of the Rings....) and photos of my host-brother on exchange right now in Kentucky, USA - I'm also liking the spelling of my name.. more Chilean, like cachai, but Lyndsai
I also attempted some slacklinning yesterday, it sure is harder than it looks!
Well I'm off to watch a Christmas-themed movie to try and get in the spirit - but with spanish subtitles of course!
