Hannah's Journey to Chile

Current Location

Santiago, Chile

Hi, I'm Hannah! This semester I'll be living and studying in Santiago, Chile, and I can't wait to share my adventures with you all!


Over the weekend, a few classmates and I got to spend the day in the coastal towns of Cachuagua and Zapallar. It was a beautiful experience, off the beaten path and full of surprises.


Some aspects of Chilean culture are very foreign to me while some are just about the same. When things in Chile are different than what I'm used to, I try to be openminded see different perspectives.

Field Notes

Life in a big city like Santiago has its rewards and challenges, and, especially in Chile, it can be very different than life in much of the rest of the country. Let's examine.


I've been in Chile for one full week! I did an orientation session and some bonding activities with other students, and I spent time with my host family. Take a look!
