It’s hard to believe that the initial PFP Global Perspectives: Chile has come to an end.
On Friday morning, we said our good-byes and thank-yous to our wonderful hosts at the University of Austral – Chile (UACh) and boarded the plane to Santiago. With the Andes on the right and the Pacific coastline on the left, we winged our way to Santiago for a final visit to Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. A very informative visit to the Faculty of Engineering finalized the itinerary late Friday afternoon.
We departed for the U.S. on Friday night (January 13, 2012). Two different airlines (LAN/American, Delta), three arrival cities (Charlotte, NC; Roanoke, VA; Milwaukee, WI), and one transfer in Lima, Peru. By now, we have all reached our respective destinations and soon we will be back in Blacksburg and VT.
Much has been learned and more will be explored. IInitial observations have shared with more reflections to come. Our experiences will be described through photos and other visual representations of our individual and collective journey. Although the experience ended in Chile yesterday, the journey continues. Stay tuned, there’s more to come.
