So, for today’s post, I decided to observe the most popular place of the town where I’m currently living.
. . .
So, I’m just sitting here in the middle of “La Plaza de Armas” in Quillota, Chile, eating manjar ice cream in 30 degree Celsius weather, in the middle of January.
. . .
It’s currently summer here in Chile which means everyone is either, enjoying their vacation or just continuing with their work and daily life.
But, either way, for me, the following is what I’m observing and hearing:
- People getting off work
- People walking with their families/friends
- People shopping
- Kids playing, laughing, running, swinging, etc.
- People taking naps under the palm trees
- Music playing
- People selling things (like, ice cream)
- People dancing
- People performing
- Birds chirping
- Taxis and buses honking
Those are all just regular everyday things, but sometimes the simple things can be the most interesting; I’ve just learned a lot about the culture of this country by people watching and writing this post.
And, I know, I know, those are just normal things you would observe in any town during the summer but, what makes it different to me, is that it’s all happening in Spanish (and the fact it’s summer in January).
Below I’ve included a few pictures of my current surroundings:
