For New Year's Eve, we are heading to Valparaiso where there will be an estimated 12 million fireworks set off. NYE in Valpo is said to be a must-do while here in Chile. Matt is planning to do a big multi-week hike by himself. I am SO excited about that (note the sarcasm). After that Matt's parents, brother and sister-in-law will be visiting for almost 2 weeks. We will be traveling down south to Petrohue, then to the Casablanca Valley to drink wine and then back to Valapraiso and Viña del Mar. There will surely be another blog post documenting all of our adventures. I`m not sure if Matt`s dad will take any pictures though...
For the first week in February, Matt`s brother will stay here and go climbing. I`m sure they have some fun, Andean adventures planned. I have no definite plans for the month of February. I may take an intensive Spanish course to keep chugging away at my goal of learning this language. Or, I may find a little cabin somewhere, pack up the cat and get out of the city! We shall see! Matt returns back to school the 3rd week of February to start his second semester at Nido. He was hired back to finish the school year which means the pay checks keep coming! Yes!

PS So all of you know, we will be traveling back to the East Coast next (your) summer for most of July. We will both be in the NY/RI/CT/ME area for the last three weeks of the month, with Matt possibly being there the entire month. Any of you west coast folks should definitely plan your vacations around US!
