the sun is shining and it´s a beautiful day (jueves, 9 septiembre)

Iquique, Chile

Today was another early dismissal due to the Bicentennial celebrations going on this week, so I walked around downtown Iquique for a while and enjoyed the golden sun. I had a few errands to do--buying toothpaste and travel-sized shampoo--but while walking past the piercing studio in the markets, I impulsively decided to get my bellybutton pierced because I saw a lime green ring that I liked. Plus, I missed having my piercing, which had accidentally been torn out a long time ago while I´d been changing clothes. It didn´t really hurt, and on the bright side, piercings are a lot cheaper here. On the way back to my House I saw one of my former Quatro Medio students on the bus so I talked to him for a while. When I got home I went on a nice long run along the beaches before showering and packing the rest of my things into my backpack. I hung out with Santiago and Manuel for a while near Guayquique before heading downtown to meet another teacher at the school to head to Perú. We ate at El Tercer Ojito, which is a new-agey vegetarian-friendly restaurant near the school. I had vegetable curry which was delicious. Now headed off to Perú! I can´t wait!
