Puerto Varas.....10 hrs later on the bus....no problem. They´ve got this bus travel thing down in S America. Watch Bangkok dangerous...again...some House, various other stuff. Arrive late, call the lady to let her know at our next B&B. An easy stroll down the hill when we finally arrive around 10pm....find the place, check in. Lovely room, a bit small, suffer from some bed bugs here i think....or is being next to a lake¿ Still, no biggie.
Puerto Varas is a pleasant, cozy little lakeside town, lots of log effect buildings in a German style. Great view of a volcano across the lake (Mt Osorno). Air is crisp and clean, a little chilly (ha ha) at night. Food is fantastic, highlight was pichanga....a giant plate of chips, meats, sausages, pickles, bread and cheese! get yourself to Cafe Danes.
Not much to do here out of season...lots of mountain walking, kayaking i read. Chose a more sedate stay....enjoyed the views, Easter market etc. So cozy at the guesthouse, stayed a couple of nights (despite the bugs) before pushing on to....another country. Argentina, here we come!
