Alicia's Journey to Chile

Current Location

San Pedro de la Atacama, Chile

Hola! Hello! My name is Alicia, and I'm currently studying Spanish and learning about Chilean culture in Valparaiso, Chile. I am so excited to explore this country and share my experiences with you!


My classmates and I traveled together to the Atacama Desert. We visited the little town of San Pedro de la Atacama, which consisted of only a couple of streets, and all of the roads were dirt!


This looks like the end, but only for now!

Field Notes

Every community around the world is in need of some sort of support in one area or another. Valparaíso excels in some areas as a community but needs help in others, including in caring for stray dogs.


Last week someone asked what it looks like while I am walking through the streets. I took some photos of what I see while I am going about my day.
