|I stepped out by myself today to try to find the fish market. i had planned to meet jacob the sweede there for lunch. After getting a bit lost and using some bad spanish, i finally found it. But it was too late to meet up with jacob.
I walked around and found a restuarant with good prices and sat down for lunch. I ordered a not so tasty cold dish of seafood. a massive amount of food but not my type of dish. After i ate i then found the crab cakes i heard about and kicked myself.
so I had a terrible meal and was late for meeting up with my friend, but all in all i was happy. I think these first couple of days in santiago are getting me set for the 4 months ahead. I am getting a little more confident every day and today was a big step.
i am downloading a langauge app as I make this entry, another confidence booster :)
