So, like a normal gringo...I went to leave the house today to meet up with some friends at estación de metro Baquedano. I causally let my host mom know where I was going and she all of a sudden told me in a very high-pitched, semi-scared voice that I COULD NOT go there today!
I was confused
Then she reminded me of the student protests that are going to happen today.
They usually involve fire and tear gas.
Needless to say I am not going to Baquedano to meet up with friends.
