Travel Blogs from Iowa City
Hello all! My name is Evan Kurtz and this is my first ever blog post! I am currently in my junior year at the University of Iowa. I am doing a double major in Marketing and Spanish. I began this blog because I will be going to South America soon for my study abroad in Santiago de Chile. I am extremely excited to begin this blog for two reasons:
1. To portray to the world my thoughts and observations of Chile.
