I experienced a random act of kindness in Chile during my year-long, around the world trip. I was camping with my friend in Torres del Paine National Park. We went hiking and my friend Annelis, was very fit and used to hiking. I was not.
While on a hill, I fell behind her. I was breathing heavily, sweating a lot, and had a red face. A gaucho, or Chilean cowboy, came our way on his horse. He offered to give me a ride for the last leg of our hike.

I ended up climbing on the tall and beautiful brown horse. I felt really grateful and relieved I didn’t have to walk on. I was able to enjoy the beautiful view of the national park from the back of a horse.
