Today was pretty lazy. After sleeping in and then finally eating some food we wandered into town to rent a car. Thomas had told us to go to the Mate shop (mate is a traditional tea drank by Chileans and other South Americans) and ask for Fidel. Yeah, we rented a car from a shop that sold pots, pans, mate, cheese, and other random goods. Hahaha. The transaction went smoothly and we stopped by the store to grab a few thing to make easy to-go food for the next day. That night we went to Cote's' going away BBQ (she was going to Brazil for vacation for a month) which was hosted by one of her friends. The place was pretty cool and there were several other people there that I had met the night before at the bar. They were cooking up some fantastic chicken wings, grilled meat, corn with Creme, and more. We brought some drinks and also two beers that Thomas gave me from the German brewer that I fixed the label for. Those beers turned out to be the best I have had in Chile! I was very impressed with them. Good job Germans! One of Cote's friends was a pilot who did tours around the region and I was so surprised at how much the tour cost: I think it was around $1500 or more! Another of her friends didn't really speak much English besides "hello" and "open window, open door" (which turned into a sort of rap). He is a DJ and a really funny guy and we decided we wanted to be best friends with him. Haha
We called it an earlyish night after awhile because the next day we were waking up at 7:30am to drive to the marble caves....which was good because it turns out that group didn't go to sleep until 7am!
