When I arrived in Chile in May 30, the last two months of my Watson stretched out before me. Now, my departure on July 28 — just two weeks away! — seems scarily close.
I’ve had an amazing time here in Chile. I took Spanish classes in Santiago for the first two weeks and have been blundering about in the language since then. After classes ended, I started conducting interviews (mostly in English) and have had fun gaining insight into the Chilean Smart Grid scene (more on that later). I’ve also traveled out of Santiago for some sightseeing. I especially enjoyed my trip to San Pedro de Atacama; I think the Atacama Desert region is one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Below are pictures from two sunsets during my San Pedro de Atacama trip. I hope you enjoy them!
Sunset 1: Valle de La Luna
Probably the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen. My phone camera can’t even start to do it justice. The clouds changed drastically in color over time (you can see this change in the pictures, which are ordered chronologically). By the end, I was filled with the euphoria of twenty sunsets.
Sunset 2: Lagunas Altiplánicas
The sky during this sunset looked like a watercolor painting. So beautiful.
