Today we had to wake up at 7:30 to be down eating breakfast at 8 with our suitcases packed up and ready. We had only gotten 2 hours of sleep the night before, and it showed on everyone’s faces. Before we left for the day’s activities, the counselors called a meeting in the lobby. After we had returned from the club the night before, Victor, the counselor, had found me, Cassidy, and Michelle waiting outside our room because Brenna was the only one with a key and she hadn’t arrived yet. Victor went across the hall to Louis’s room to look for her, since they are really good friends. When he entered the boys’ room, he discovered Nigel on the balcony with a cigarette. He told us how disappointed he was in this betrayal of trust, and the girl counselors even started crying because they were sad that they would have to tell their bosses what had happened and it would “reflect badly on the north trip and on them”. I admit that they’d had to put up with a lot, but at the same time, I think crying was just a little much. Anyway, from there we got on the bus and we all slept the hour ride to the Oficina Salitre de Humberstone, which was a salt peter mine where Chile made most of its money during the first and second world wars.
