A Whole New World
Moving day started bright and early at 8:30 on Saturday with biking to my new place and leaving my bike there. Then it was on the bus back home to pick up my suitcase and new bedding and pillows and back on the bus again.
Then it was off to Bio Bio to buy my bed frame. Jean (my Chilean friend) helped shop around for the best deal, and he also asked about how to shop for a good quality bed frame. (Note, to all readers, avoid buying bed frames at Ikea if you can help it, long story that some of you may know!) In the end I got one for 35.000 pesos (around 65 bucks).
By this time it was about 3:30, and one of Jean's friends offered to help move my furniture in his van. Luckily we got everything fit in, and it reminds me of what the back of my Subaru looked like on the road trip back from California:
These pictures were actually taken at Marioly´s (Malu for short) boyfriend´s house, as we were celebrating her birthday. Both Malu and Cristian are psychology students doing their internships now working at local hospitals. They are relaxed, socialble, and muy simpáticos. We are like the Chilean version of Three´s Company.
Here are a few more pictures from the evening:
