Today Lily and I were woken up in the middle of the night to an earthquake. I actually didn’t feel it, but Lily woke me up after to tell me about it, and I heard her sister freaking out in the other room. I wasn’t too bothered, and so I went back to sleep. At 5:30 we woke up and sluggishly got dressed and ready to go. By 6:20 we had eaten breakfast and driven to the house of Lily’s first host mom, who was going to drive us to the bus station. We met up with Anabel and Clara and the 4 of us drove the 50 minutes into the center of Santiago to catch the bus. When we got there and met up with the rest of the exchange students, it was a huge reunion filled with hugs and laughter and loud chatter in English.
