There are quite a few differences between Chile and Peru that threw me off upon arriving. The most challenging of which was the speed of their spanish along with slang that I had never heard before. Second difference was the money and trying to figure out the exchange rate so I didn’t freakout when my beer cost 500 Pesos. Third was the taxi system, unlike Peru which is a giant free for all, Chilean taxis have specific zones and it takes a while to understand what area is designated for each numbered taxi. All in all, it was a terrific trip and I look forward to another one in 3 months. 

Oh and the pictures of ‘Peru’ and 'Chile’ are from both borders as I crossed into each country. The 'Peru’ is a common design found on t-shirts and stuff in tourist shops.

This is my travel blog and writing portfolio covering my life in China and my trips around the world, including the food, experiences, people, culture, history, and architecture. Living in Beijing has been an adventure, so here's some insight into one of the world's biggest cities.
