wild horses, etc.

Chile has been experiencing aftershocks since the big quake a couple weeks ago, and not the unnerving-but-harmless 5.5 kind: 6.x and 7.x shakers that in other circumstances might be considered fairly serious quakes on their own.

A few people have asked, with varying degrees of incredulity, if I'm still going to Chile on Tuesday.

The answer is that unless WorldTeach says otherwise, I'm going. I chose this path for a host of good reasons, and I'm going to follow it through.

(Those of you who have ever tried to get me to change my determined course--or pre-emptively dismissed the idea of trying--can now have a loving chuckle.)


  1. Just so you apply the same determination to coming back to the Center of the World, I'm good. :-)

  2. Best of luck to you Chris in this amazing adventure. I look forward to your insightful and zany comments during your stay in Chile, as I so enjoy reading your blog entries. Still say you've missed your calling and should become an author!
