Christmas is celebrated today instead of tomorrow here in Chile. I got up early and went for a run, and then Nancy, Monse, Maxi, and I started to decorate the millions of cookies that we had made the night before. We decorated for like 4 hours while we talked and listened to Christmas carols. Then I went on Facebook and sent Merry Christmas messages to my friends from the US. I sent some to people that I haven’t talked to at all since I’ve been here, so it was nice to let them know that I’m still out here and breathing and loving and missing them.
