One Week Away

On February 2nd I leave from LAX to Santiago, Chile. First destination the outdoor paradise of Pucon with Mike Thompson. We will be arriving in Santiago in the AM and heading south on an overnight bus (the first of many). It will be so strange to enter a country that is in the height of summer.
After that I will spend three weeks in Santiago in a language program that includes a home-stay with a family in the heart of Santiago (Providencia is the neighborhood or Commune as they call it). classes are 5 days a week, and should help me get a handle on the language, and culture.
My first month is very planned out and then after that is a big question mark. I have places I want to go to and things I want to see but I am not sure how it will all unfold. Hopefully there will be plenty of Blog posts to keep you updated. The plan is to do six countries (Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, and Argentina) in a span of six months. I have a return flight on August 5th.
Here I go!
