Today we woke up late again and had a late breakfast. Then we all packed up our stuff and drove for an hour and a half out into the countryside to this big ranch owned by one of Tata’s friends. There was a big room apart from the house just to eat in, and nearby there was a river, horses, sheep, and plenty of space to walk around. Monse, Maxi, Laurie, and I entertained ourselves for a while playing with a slingshot, throwing apples at sheep, and playing rayuela (a typical Chilean game that involves throwing little metal balls so that they land in a certain square). Then we all sat down to eat a late lunch. After lunch, we put on our bathing suits, and Nancy drove us about 15 minutes down the road to this secret place she used to go with her friends when she was a teenager. It was like a giant natural pool of water. It was up in the rocks, surrounded by trees, and absolutely beautiful, but the water was fricken freezing.
