Chau Chile Part 1

It's been a loooong time since my last blog entry and nooo, that doesn't have anything to do with my laziness (or just very little)! Mostly, I realized that there was only one month left for me in Chile (yes, after 2.5 years in Chile, I decided to pack my bags and hit the road again) and from then on everything has been pretty much a roller coaster ride. At first you think you have all the time in the world, it's still 3 more months before you leave and then, next thing you now, you have only 2 weeks left and don't even know where to begin. Plus, leaving in the month of September, I hadn't considered Chile's Independence Day (18th) - which means: for an entire month the whole country is paralyzed. Great for everybody else, for the two people in all of Santiago who need to take care of shots, visa regulations, get doctors appointments, sign finiquitos (if you have no idea what I am talking about, I am right with you there) ...
Anybody else might go crazy, pull out her hair, cry every time she hangs out with her friends 'cause it might be the last time, fight every day with the boyfriend but NOT ME (okay, me too- but don't tell anybody!)! Being the efficient German that I am, I have managed to put together a very useful to-do-list to help myself get organized before the trip:

I am really proud of my organizational skills! The rest of my "tasks" - writing articles, change money, sell my clothes, buy a backpack - should be a piece of cake after this!
