Daniela and I went to Patronato to shop for shoes for our company Christmas party, then we went to Bellavista for dinner, walked around the Bellas Artes neighborhood, and saw the Lastarria area. I know this means nothing to most of you reading this, but basically I saw some other Santiago neighborhoods, and I really liked them. I live in the business/financial district, so it is quite different from most other parts of the city.
The weather has been fantastic lately. It is cool enough for a jacket in the morning, hot enough for shorts and a tank top in the afternoon, and the perfect temperature in the evening to sit outside for dinner. I sat outside for dinner Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights here.
As of yesterday, I have officially been here four weeks. I am really enjoying my time here, but I know I’m going to be very ready to be home by the time December rolls around. I am so grateful for everyone who has sent me messages either via the blog, Facebook, or email while I’ve been here!
Since I don’t have any new pictures from Chile to post on the blog, I’ll indulge you with more pictures of Sadie. Zack sends me plenty of pictures of the pup, which is great because I miss her so stinkin’ much! Here she is with her toy Yoshi (Zack says he did not pose these):
And last but not least, I am super-proud of my talented husband and his successful engineering design review at work on Friday. That is a huge milestone for his project at work, and it’s a big relief for him to have it completed. While he was working ridiculous hours last week, Zack took Sadie over to visit with his parents and Sophie one night so that she could have some company and get some exercise. Sadie and Sophie wore each other out playing with the dog toys – here is a picture that Jean-Marie sent me:
