>Today I turned 23. According to everyone here, I’m just a “niña” and I guess if you think about it in Chile terms, I am.
Last night I had some friends over for wine and food and conversation. It was fun and thanks to everyone who came!
Today I woke up and spoke with my lovely family, then made pancakes with F. (even though he thought it was a very strange lunch, I told him it was my birthday and I could do what I want…hehehe). Then I took a much needed nap and Isabel came over. My host mom came rushing in about an hour later with empanadas and cake and we chatted for awhile with my host sister U., Sara and J., my gringo host brother.
Now I’m watching some TV and drinking tea because I think I’m getting a cold :(.
Thanks to everyone who sent me birthday wishes and who made my day special! I really appreciate it.
