*3/4: This week we traveled to Chile with Eduardo! Made a stop in Easter Island and got to see almost 900 stone figures that date back many centuries! We met the many animales found in Chile, foxes, puma and flamingos! Edward also shared that the long coastline of Chile is home to the Gentoo Penguin! We learned that the children in rural areas wake up anytime between 5:00 – 6:00 a.m. to walk to school, or meet the bus. Chilean food consist of completo, pebre, empanadas, churrasco and cazuelas. We also had the privilege to try galletas from Chile! Sooooooo yummyyyy! Gracias a Edward and his madre!
