interning at an NGO
for nearly 8 months

First stop: Bariloche, mostly known for its
I went camping in very cold conditions
hiked up to a glacier
and walked through a forest of nearly extinct trees
and Alta Gracia, town of Ernesto "Che" Guevara's childhood home
Best way to see Argentina's wine country?
It all started when I moved to

Homage to SalvadorAllende
a popular vacation spot north of Valpo
First stop in Bolivia was a multi-day tour of the Salt Flats of Uyuni.
The tour group
Sleeping at 4000 meters altitude with no heat
But it was worth it to see this
Headless Condor Rock
we had 2 jeeps

Adios Peru, Hola Ecuador!
I met up with a friend from college
and relived my
study abroad past
and a 23 hour bus ride later...
but when you're so close
to the Caribbean Coast
it's hard to stay away
after all that, I figured it was time to relax in one spot for a while
yes, this will do!
I got SCUBA certified
I took some side trips too
and learned how to clean a coral nursery
(this one's pretty dirty)
and its underground cathedral
in an abandoned mine
when people ask about my trip
they don't mess around
it's hard to sum
it up in words
so mostly I say
pretty great place
I helped out at Fundacion Calipso
it was hard to believe
I had come so far
home to fossilized dinosaur footprints!!!
is a city of extreme
I moved there without much of a plan, but
I got to live among
Rodrigo & Gabriela
