Colchagua 2.0

I travelled to the wine region of Colchagua and the coastal towns of Pichilemu and Cáhuil in central Chile with my study abroad program.  It was three days with biking, wine drinking, and lots of food.  Group travel still isn't my favorite, but it was worth it to fall asleep with the sound of breaking waves outside my window.  This is the same excursion I did last semester, with last semester's students - to see that blog post click here.
