Okay, so I have a lot of catching up to do, considering in my last post we were in Ecuador and now we're in Chile, but there's time for that later.
We made it to Puerto Varas yesterday, hoping to rent a car and make our way down through Patagonia, but unavailabilty, border crossings, and unbooked ferries made things quite complicated. We decided to change our plan (which we're still figuring out) and the day's disappointment actually turned into a really lovely evening. The weather was pleasant, the town, which I've likened to a ski resort, so quaint, the people incredibly friendly.
As we were finishing up dinner, the sun had just set and produced this array of pink, purple, and blue pastel hues not only in the sky, but also on the lake. The air was clear and fresh, giving full visibility to a snow-capped Volcan Osorno in the distance.
