Dia Numero dos

Santiago, Chile

I have just completed day two on the trip and have been having a blast so far. I have traveled around the entire city, used the subway, climbed to the top of San Cristobal (because we couldn't find the trolley), eaten some amazing food, been to the markets, and much more. The language barrier is not as tall as I expected and everyone here is very accomodating. The people seem to be very nice and not hateful towards Americans and they aure do love our women. My Spanish has been improving everyday and I can communicate very well with my broken Spanish and their broken English. Tomorrow we have meetings all day. I am about oto head to the welcome dinner with the Austral Group.

I have not experienced as much culture shock as I would have expected although I am not used to some things and have to catch myself before drinking tap water or eating some foods. The food has been extremely good although very different from America and sometimes I do not even know what I am eating. I am off to dinner, so more will come later.

Just as Max learns how to learn English, I feel that every day I am becoming a better translator. Wonder why?
