The weather started out beautyfull. I still had to rush to the ferry because I did not arrive in Chaiten as planned. I was curious after the Chilean ´Pompei´. It sure had it´s blow from the Vulcano. The gouvernment wants people to leave but a lot of people want to stay. What is wise and where is the heart. If I could choose between La Junta and Chaiten I knew where I would stay. The 27 km went smoothly and I still had enough time to take some pictures in Chaiten. On the boat I met Elly - Canadian Dutch - maried with Ramiro from Chili. After a life of work they traveled all trough Chili. On the boat also Sue and Mike from Florida whom I met earlier on the Yelcho sendero. The German couple Use and max had already some bicycle experience in the Lagos - part of Chili. They gave me some routes for next week. It was a pleasant trip on the sunny boat. Vulcano, Snowcovered mountains, Dolphins, Sea Lions and Penguins. A quiet nap and a bit of sunburn. In the evening in Hornopiren I had dinner with Mike and Sue which was very nice apart
from the food which was served. Maybe the Hotel was only for sleeping. I slept in the garden of a family with my tent under a roof. Two boys on a bike had showed me the way. It was close to the center so very practical.
Welcome on my travel blog. Hope to keep everyone updated as much as possible. This time it is going to Chile with the bike. Hope to have a nice time on the Carretera Austral. Maybe you join me.
