crossing the border from Bariloche (Arg)to Puerto Montt (Chi)
Hola!
Crossed the border yet again, from Argentina to Chile, witha small kids vomiting every five seconds - not my best trip. Made my way to Puerto Montt, a town in many respects similar to Portland - a nice foreshore, but not really uch else. I had intended to stay there for a week but decided to keep moving after one night.
Travelled from Puerto Montt (black and white photos) to Chiloe (colourful houses on stilts and boats stuck after low tide)) via ferry to visit the National Park near Cucao. Passed masses of gunnera on the beach, the last place I imagined it to grow, but there it was, no more than 50m from the shore line. Spent a few hours hiking with a full pack across hot sand and decided to call it a day halfway. Luckily I had my tent, but there was also an empty wood and tin hut to use for the night. Got some nice shots of the bridge leading up to the hut too. Made my way back to the Park Ranger station the next morning, very weary and sore, to travel back to Puerto Montt and onto Punta Arenas. The next task was to tackle Torres Del Paine National Park - a four day stretch called ¨the W¨, around the valleys of two large mountains. Shopped for food supplies in Puerto Natales, a much quieter town than Punta Arenas, which I like very much (only behind San Martin and Beriloche).
After four days of pain and spectacular scenery (and photos), I'm back enjoying sleeping in a bed and eating off a table - ahhh, it's the small things in life...
