When I was five years old, I went to visit my mom’s family in Chile. We went with my family and grand-parents because it was a long time when they saw there’re family. So it was a nice two week vacation.
We visited the city of Santiago, Viña del Mar, Cisco, and Valparaiso. We stayed in a hotel, at my mom’s aunt for a few days with my mom’s cousins too. There was Ankisa (girl), Davor (boy), Neven (boy), and Axel (boy) with of course Tia Pabla (Tia means aunt). That was in a little town called Villa Macul.
When we were in the city of Cisco, we stay in a house one block away from the beach. People were selling fresh new bread in the streets, they called out ‘‘Pan Amasado!’’ (Home-made Bread!) It was delicious! (We bought some)
My grandpa’s family organized a nice outside barbeque to meet us, because the last time they saw my mom, she was only 5 years old. Everybody spoke Spanish, and very fast so I didn’t understand them. But when I was with my mom’s cousins, they spoke slowly to me and I understood.
I visited the downtown in Santiago, there were a lot of people and it’s a busy town.
Even when if I was five, I look at the pictures (memories) and it came back to me. I hope to go back soon! And by the way, I lost a tooth over there! I got money from the ‘tooth fairy’ and also my grandmother so she can give it to me.
P.S. Almost forgot, they have the same McDonalds as us in Canada but they sold Cheese Empanadas….My favourite!!!
