Life Lately

Once again, I am so sorry about my long absences here.  We had a very busy two weeks getting ready for the first day of school.  I am happy to announce that we both survived the first week unscathed but quite exhausted!  So, this seems like the perfect time to let you all in on what's been happening with us lately.

A Little R & R One of our coworkers was kind enough to let us use her beach house in Las Cruces for just over a week!  It was some much needed relaxation and time away from our duties in Santiago.  Las Cruces is a quiet city of only 3,000 people living there year round, but when summer hits, over 10,000 tourists come in to experience the clean beaches.  We also took a short drive over to a nearby town to take a boat tour.  On our tour, we saw tons of wildlife and were lucky enough to get some pretty close shots!  So, Pam, if you are reading this, thank you once again for an amazing trip!

The Arts  We have been living here in Santiago for over a year, and it took us this long to finally make it to Bellas Artes Museum!  This is the national arts museum of Santiago, and we were lucky enough to go on a day that all the rooms were full with exhibits!  This was definitely a highlight of my summer break!

I will be sure to post more often now that the first week of school is over!  Things are starting to settle down for us, and we are getting back into our work routine.  What have you been up to lately?
