Chile is on.
Like it says on the tin, I'm going to Chile in May. We managed to find an agreement and now they're sorting out my flights, which I hope will go via Madrid rather than Paris. It'll be three weeks in a culture I'm not terribly familiar with, even if I do speak the lingo pretty well. One thing I have noticed is that they often tend to leave the 's' off the ends of words, so I'm preparing for an 'a' and 'o' overdose where previously I supped on the delicious, slippery letter indicating the plural. Quite frankly, I have no idea what to expect, but everyone I've spoken to who has worked there says it's wonderful. It'll be three weeks without Mrs. F and the Fingernails, but it may well open up future possibilities. Plus, it's a bit of extra money, and that never goes amiss.
