North of the border night

Tonight (Sunday night) Joanna and Rob came over for a fiesta. We had homemade tortilla chips, steak and chorizo chimichangas, mexican creamed corn, and mexican roasted vegetables. We also had dos equis and corona- happy days, are both now found at deca. For dessert, Rob made a fantastic cuatro leche cake, it was to die for. We ended the night listening to music and playing carcassonne- a german game. I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD!!!!

Number 315 on my list of things I never thought I would do…

Get a foreign drivers license. As we have now been here for a year, our international drivers licenses have expired, so we spent the end of the week at the chilean DMV. We didn’t have to take a driving test, but we did have to take a reflex test and an eye test. In the end, everything went well, though the lighting at the DMV picture taking place is for chileans, and Steve and I ended up looking like tomatoes in our pictures, oh well.

We can finally stop pretending that we like soccer

Though we are not avid soccer fans by any means, Steve and I have watched almost every World Cup game this year. I actually ended up enjoying it more than I thought, though part of that may have been in-part due to the fact that at the end of the games the soccer players take their shirts off, and also I love hearing the chilean announcer yell GGGGGGGGOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLL for about 10 minutes. Today, while I was rooting for Francia, and Steve was rooting for Italia, Leyna was busy rooting for Alemania. We didn’t have the heart to tell her that they ended up in third place.
