I've been in Chile for about a week now, and things have progressively gotten better every day. I've never been alone in a Country where no one speaks my language before, and I have to admit it was tougher and lonelier than I expected. After the first day or so it got better quickly though, now I've gotten into a bit of a groove and things are smooth sailing.
I've been working 9-6 and then either wandering around Chile, or going out for drinks with people from work. So far this has probably been the best business trip I've been on: not too long, lots of time to get things done, and hot sunny weather everyday.
