The things we carry when we travel: Our ethnicity. Our dreams. Our hopes.

My hair looks different, my backpack is always open, and I have a medium brown complexion. I'm sun-kissed. I am kissed by the sun. Now, if you live in Boston or in Medford, where I go to Tufts, and you saw me walking down the street, you'd probably make nothing of it.

I have not been in Chile for over two months, and I miss it more and more each day. The six months I spent in Chile were the busiest six months of my college experience.
