Cachai?: Pucón Parte 1

Cachai?: Cena Internacional

Hola amigos! This weekend I could not really do anything fun since I have 2 exams this week which I really need to study for.

Cachai?: Fantasilandia

Hola amigos! Since I had 2 exams coming up, I did not have much time this weekend to go out. Nonetheless, I did not want to completely stay indoors so my friend Lua and I took it upon ourselves to use half of Sunday (September 4th) to go out and the other half to study ...

Cachai?: Tour de Plaza de Armas y Santa Lucia

Hola amigos! On one of my recent adventures I went on a tour of Plaza de Armas with my friend and her Tandem partner. Before I continue and just completely leave you guys wondering what Tandem is, let me just explain it. So for foreign exchange students who want to improve their language or Chileans ...
