a beauty i bought today! my mom and dad gave me money to buy me a sewing machine like an anticipated birthday gift. this’s an old singer 248, i’m so eager to try it! i’ve been needing one so badly. thanks!

my love took a picture of mimi, chicoca and me.

we found this beautiful dog, chicoca, walking down the streets looking for food, and so we took her to a vet and now we’re looking for a home where she’d be loved.

stuff i made for my drawing class.

in the first one i had to make a study of the flow of the place i’ve picked. yesterday night (when it was raining a lot) i went to this small park i'd chosen and took pictures of cars passing by with a long time exposure. after printing the image i passed it to a butter paper and then photocopied it.

in the second one i had to make traces of my body. i decided to take pictures of my own shadows and then use them as stencils.

yesterday my paprika seeds finally germinated! i already thought they're never going to, as i'd been waiting so long. today we went to the market place and bought a huge amount of fruits and vegetables. i'd love to find some new (vegetarian) recipes, if someone would like to share!

what a lazy day! i barely was at the the university, as i had to go only to arrange some issues. recently watched how chile lost against ecuador in football. now some better thoughts with few movies and eating pop corn in the sofa. mimi is very into pop corn!

mimi was stomach ill so i prepared her a little cute plate of soup, which she truly enjoyed. first picture taken by my love.

we recently returned from a big mall nearby where i go only to buy rye bread that i've been unable to find elsewhere. i also find some pop corn to prepare in micro wawe, yogurt salad dressing and cream cheese with a flavor of chives. i've realized there're so many thing i miss from finland, but happily some of them are possible to find here but overpriced. one of the places i most love in santiago is la vega, where you can find tons of fruits, vegetables, nuts and also meat, fish and seafood at a very reasonable price. i guess i'll take my camera with me someday to document that very special place.

today i saw a wonderful piece of theater and circus at my university. it really motivated me to participate in the workshop which was performing, although i guess i'll never be able to create something so beautiful on the trapeze...
