We had planned to wake up early to get a good start on seeing Santiago, but we actually ended up waking up around 11 and not being ready to go to the airport to get the rental car until around noon. When we got to the airport, there was a problem with the rental car, and I had to solve it for them because Katie wasn’t feeling confident enough with her Spanish. We finally got the car and promptly got stuck in a huge bit of traffic on the way to Patio Bellavista, where Katie wanted to take her family to lunch. We got a little lost on the way because Katie and I only know Santiago walking or by metro, never in car, but we got there eventually. We went to a little restaurant that Katie ate at her first day here and ordered some typical Chilean food for the family—chorillanas and empanadas. We ate and then walked around the patio for a while because it’s a really gorgeous place. We were also waiting for my cousin Nacho, who lives in Santiago, because I wanted to leave Katie alone with her family and I had told him that we could hang out for a little while. He finally came and met us and I said goodbye to Katie’s family. Then Nacho and I walked a short way to the Santiago zoo, where we walked around looking at the animal exhibits and talking. It was a really good vocabulary exercise to learn all the animals’ names in Spanish.
