Today was filled with a sea of emotions. How can a person feel so much in a single day? So many thoughts can occupy your mind and bring a current of reactions. However, I chose to set my fears and worries aside and just let the day walk slowly, often setting aside any impulse to think too much. It was worth it, I about started crying because my mom said she wanted to surf. First of all, the thought of her on a surfboard made me extremely nervous, because first: she's still learning how to swim properly, and second: she has a back problem. Then, skydiving came into the equation, which I guess is a better option, since you have an instructor who flies with you, so if she were to panic and forget to open the parachute, there would be someone there for her.I walked around Santiago this morning, embracing the cold breeze and watching the people walk by. They have moving carts for the tourist guides, which I couldn't help but be amused and was very much tempted to find out the touristy places. Feeling a bit introverted, I watched from a distance as two elderly ladies asked to take pictures with them.
I sat down on a bench, and started thinking of my life back home. I didn't get too far, it's as if the day beckoned me not to think at all and just observe.
So observe, I did.
