Fiesta de Vendimia

18 Apr 2017

Name three things you know about Chile!

Patagonia? Copper? Spanish?

All of these are good answers, but you shouldn't forget about the world famous wine production. Chileans certainly don't. Every March and April, cities in Chilean wine regions host harvest celebrations. During those weekend-long events all wine growers gather to enjoy this important time of the year. Understandably, I couldn't resist but visit one of them. But don't get fooled, Fiesta de Vendimia has much more to offer than just wine. See for yourself!

A Trip to Marseille

by Brooklyn

Before I went to Marseille, I didn’t know much about it. Truth be told, there’s still a lot I could learn. However, the huge takeaway from our Marseille excursion was that it was founded by immigrants. This thought touched me as I compared the city to the United States and its own founding.
