Where I stayed
The next day they had a party with family and friends. I was supprised to see the my friend Sebastian was invited. He was my BIGG SURPRISE!! Everyone wants me and Sebastian to be a couple. Even though he is very cute and smart he is too young for me and I think we are good friends so why mess it up. The night was filled with music food and lots of dancing and slowling the night became day and all my guests were gone by 5:30am this was an new record
On Monday August 24th I had the task of going back to the school and saying goodbye to the children. I had a speak prepared but when I entered the gates of Instituto Parral the words got stuck in my throat and the tears began to flow. I did not know it would be this hard to leave these kindhearted folks. Only 2 months ago I walked in the classroom for the first time and now it seemed like a life time. They gave me gifts and hugs and said loads of wonderful things about how the would miss me and all I could do was know my head and cry. It was time to go and the fresh air outside was a welcomed relief. Before I left my little friend Estaban ran to give me a hug and to say that he would miss me. I gave him a hug and kiss and waved goodbye. He stayed at the door waving through the glass and my heart began to break once again.
We went to the house and Eliana made me a good lunch and packed a few sandwiches for the ride to Santiago. Funny that is the same thing my mom would have done. She busied herself with packing and cleaning up the lunch dishes trying to occupy her mind so she would not have to think about me leaving
The bus ride went quickly and then I was in the station in Santiago. The conductor took my bags to the terminal for the airport shuttlem and 15 minutes later I was headed for the airport. Check in was easy and within 15 minutes I was at my gate. I got a bite to eat and waited for my plain headed for the US. Before I left I called Eliana and Raul and they were sitting at the table having dinner. I told them I would be in touch and ended the call with "Te Quiero A Morir" Raul laughed and said,"Yo Tambien." (Me too).
Well 13 hours and 2 planes later I am in good old Ohare airport waiting for my mom to pick me up. She arrives and I spend the next 2 hours telling her all kinds of crazy Chilean stories.
That is the end of this story my friends but I am sure another adventure is waiting for me just around the corner. Until next time, be good to each other and live the adventure.
