Elizabeth's Journey to Chile

Current Location

Llaenque, Panquehue, Chile.

Hi all! My journey is to Santiago, Chile - a place where my grandparents left about 50 years ago. I am here to learn about my heritage, culture and reconnect with my family and my roots.


This week my time was split between being in the desert and being back in the city— it was a busy but wonderful week!


Coming from the U.S., no matter what our family histories might be, we are perceived as living the American dream. . . 

Field Notes

What is life like for kids who live in the campo of Chile?


Retail developers were going to demolish their apartments to make new ones for sale, so this community in Santiago came up with a creative way to save their homes. They painted murals alongside them!
