Today was Harley´s first ride on the metro. She has concluded that Metro = Evil. I am not sure why. Perhaps the sound of the doors. So my pup that travels so quietly that we haven´t had a problem on the bus or on planes, screamed and cried for 13 metro stations during rush hour. We are hoping that the metro back to the bus station on Wednesday is significantly less eventful and stressful.
That said, upon arriving in the Santiago apartment and meeting my host sisters for the first time she proceeded to have both fall in love with her. She also enjoyed treats of ham, chicken, cheese, and empanada. (Harley is going to be more spoiled byt the time she leaves Chile!)
Tomorrow I am going to listen to a talk by Benito Baranda who is a huge figure in the NGO community here in Chile. Although I have friends who have worked with him and I have read lots of his stuff, this will be my first time to meet him in person. I am really looking forward to it.
