Well after a discouraging day of interviews and hunting for Laney work, we came "home" to an email from our old friends Jana and Mathi in Valdivia, Chile. It said they were opening a bar with vegetarian tapas and wanted us to come work for them. We got this email 3 days ago and we leave tomorrow for Chile, on a 31 hour bus ride. Yep THIRTY ONE hours! Atlantic to Pacific. Valdivia is also pretty far south, so winter will indeed be felt.
We will be in Valdivia for 2 months, saving enough money to travel to a warm area during the US's winter when we return. Hey, would you want two winters in a row? No.
A flower bought by Jameson for 3.55 pesos. It was given to Laney on her discouraging day, in hopes of cheering her up.
