Hi from Cape Town

Post by Nadi37 » Sun Aug 19, 2018 8:28 pm

Hi there!
I recently moved to Chile, less than a month ago, and I'll be hanging around till January :)
A little bit of myself, I was an exchange student from South Africa 10 years ago in Santiago, and working for the same organisation now as an intern, and staying again with my lovely Chilean family. I'd love to know if there are any South African expat groups in Santiago? I'm going through a bit of culture shock(again), and having some fellow South Africans to talk to would be nice. I think, last time, coming as a student, the world was a bit simpler, but not so much now. Haha, it's pleasure to meet all of you! I was lurking on the forums for a quite a while before registering, the community looks super nice :)

There a couple south african expats living in region 9, but probably a bit far away for regular socializing if you are in Santiago.

Did you only come back to Chile for the internship?
