After a wild couple of days, missed flights, and extra flights (shoutout to hurricane Dorian) I finally arrived in Chile for the first of three countries in my abroad program. Here I will get the chance to learn about the Human Rights movements in Chile with consideration to the cultural and historical context and with a specific focus on women and indigenous people’s movements. During the program, I will be having homestays. My first homestay is an incredible family who lives in Santiago. I live with a mother (Kekah) and father (Ricardo) as well as three siblings (Paula, Sebastian, and Amanda). Luckily for me and Julianne, another girl from my program, Kekah is a great cook who makes us a homecooked meal every night! The following is a mass conglomerate of some of the food I’ve experienced in Santiago from both my host family and also when I’ve gone out to eat, but mostly from my homestay because homecooked food is always better. I tried to include the food that I thought was particularly interesting or unique!
So far Chile has been an incredible experience with lots of delicious food!
