Backpack and Las Torres del Paine in Background

Six Months in Pictures

Today marks six months since I arrived in Santiago; a reality which makes complete sense and sounds like utter rubbish in equal measure.  As is always the case with life, many, many moments since have been sun-shiningly splendid, while others have felt like turning around to find you’ve trodden dog shite across your clean kitchen floor.  As I try to comprehend the idea of half a year having past, I blame the large amount of caffeine I’ve ingested today for my inability to process it effectively in words.  So instead let’s give an uproarious “hurrah!!” for the camera and three cheers to its fabulous inventor.  Here is:
