What was your favorite memory of this trip? Too many to choose! Time spent with my family and friends here. I never felt homesick because everyone make you feel like you belong.

What was the most difficult thing you experienced? The houses are not heated. Figuring out the collective/taxi routes

What surprised you? How advanced Chile is.

Any tips for future volunteers… (clothing, travel, personal items, donations, sightseeing etc)
If you come during their winter/spring (our summer) it is cold. Bring warm clothes. Interact with the locals as much as possible that’s how you learn the culture.

1) Patient with me having limited Spanish.
2) My host mother was a very good cook
3) Extended family I met were very welcoming

Are you willing to speak to other potential ABV volunteers? Yes
