Hello readers! I'm finally back home in New Jersey after an incredible, life-altering four months in Chile. Although I'm happy to be back home (and happier still to be reunited with Laura), I confess I don't think I've ever been more sad to have to leave a place in my life. Look for some upcoming posts on the food (and drinks!) we experienced here in this unique and amazingly friendly country.
As always, here's another selection of interesting links from around the internet. I welcome your thoughts and your feedback.
