Vegetarian food is not too much of a problem, but finding it on the menue has been interesting. Marcelo, one of the other students, is from Uruguay and also vegetarian, so aside from helping with my Spanish, he is also helping me eat! Anibal is also very helpful with my Spanish problems. His name sounds like Annie Bell, sort of. He was explaining that his name is the Spanish equivalent of the guy from Silence of the Lambs, so now the two Indian students are referring to him as Dr. Lecter.
Walking along the beach yesterday on the way home from lunch gave me a better glimpse of town. We climbed a tower thing that cost around $0.50 per person, and we had a great view! Then I took a nap back at the hotel. Dinner was at a steak house--great grilled veggies! I decided I love Chilean salad also. It usually consists of NO lettuce, avocado, palm hearts (palmito), asparagus, and olives, tomato, or some other dense veggie. I think every salad should be this way! Much more satisfying.
