Good Gear!

It was chilly in our apartment till we found this little powerhouse. We’ve also outfitted the bed with a warm down blanket to help us through this Chilean winter. The cold temperatures, though, are giving us time to find a cheap/used refrigerator to buy.

The real rush is to get the internet hooked up in our apartment. Paula is having Facebook withdrawls and I miss Skyping my friends and checking the baseball scores. It has been a bit of an ordeal trying to talk with these fast speaking Chileans over the phone. If it’s not the speed they talk at it’s the Chile slang and expressions. We are getting nowhere so we’ve enlisted the help of a new friend in our building and hopefully tomorrow we’ll be online.

We’re hoping to be taking Spanish lessons soon too! Our school also teaches Spanish and offers to swap teaching hours for lesson time. It’s a really good option because Paula and I are on similar schedules and should be able to take the Spanish lessons at the same time basically giving us a 2 for 1 deal.
We’re both loving our classes and Paula is really liking teaching. I am really enjoying the organization and methodology this school provides. It’s a far cry from what I experienced in China.

Anyways hopefully the next time we post it will be from our apartment!
