It’s winter; I am not actually camping. I’ve been more or less couch surfing at my American friend’s house. It’s kind of funny actually. I haven’t been to Chicureo, my actual, AFS designated home stay, in about four days.
I discovered that this family’s nana (where I’m staying) is una aficionada de K-Pop (K-Pop fan), so I have been teaching her some Korean. One night we went though the alphabet, and it was hell! I was speaking Spanglish (Spanish – English), while going over a language I’m not even super comfortable with. I couldn’t speak any language clearly for about a hour afterwards. Not to mention, instead of sí (yes), I’ve been saying 내 (nae/yes in Korean) for the past day or two. This worries me a little because I want to learn more languages and I am already mixing the ones I know up!
Right now, I’m back in Chicureo. We are about to leave for a Fútbol game, so I’m here “temporarily” again. It’s definitely different to be back outside the city. Also, a Catholic priest will be taking my room tonight (I know right?! awkward), so I have to bunk with my host brother. It’s not the welcome I thought I’d be receiving, but I guess it serves me right for not returning for a few days.
