You guys. There are exciting things going on over here in the Emily in Chile world (including, but not limited to, talking about myself in the third person). Now, don’t get any ideas. I haven’t won the lottery, and I’m not sure that these things are exciting to anyone but me. But I still want to share because sharing’s kind of what I do here.
First, I have joined the 21st century, by which I mean that I am on Pinterest. I have so far refrained from delving into the world of other boards and repins because lately, I just haven’t had the time. Work has been busy, plus I’m doing a diplomado (1-year graduate degree, essentially half a master’s) which requires studying time. I’m loving it though, so no complaints here!
So far I’m pinning the occasional picture of my own – check out Beautiful Chile to keep up with some of the beautiful places I’ve been lucky enough to visit in this country – and photos from blogs I follow. This pretty much means my Fashion board is going to become proof of my obsession with Atlantic-Pacific and seriously? San Francisco is not that big a city, I must know someone who knows her who will help me befriend her and make her take me shopping.
For those who prefer real-life stalking, don’t think I’ve forgotten you. I am SO excited to be working with wine club LA CAV to report back on this weekend’s ExpoCAV wine expo. I’ll be attending a tasting as well as exploring the various stands from more than 40 vineyards, but if you’re in Santiago this weekend why not
see taste it for yourself? If the Fiesta del Vino de Pirque left you feeling jealous, this is the perfect chance to have a little enological fun of your own.
And to finish up, I recently booked a trip to Buenos Aires at the end of next month to see one of my close friends. That whole British passport issue isn’t a problem because I can travel between Chile and Argentina with just my Chilean ID. Perfect!
Sorry for the housekeeping style post full of somewhat random pieces of information, but as you can see, I’ve had a lot going on and wanted to share it. Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming. Coming up, the Montery Bay Aquarium. I hope you like pictures of fish.
