Rain, rain, go away, come again another day! Well, rafting is out of the question. Today we went on a drive though the wet streets in search of some hot springs instead -- a perfect thing for a rainy day! The springs were gorgeous, set right next to a river. The rainy drizzle was really cold but the springs were a perfect offset for it. There weren't too many people there at this time of year so it was pretty relaxing. I had been in hot springs before up in Colorado, but this was awesome cause it didn't have the sulfur smell. Getting out and getting back to the car was the hard part -- brrrrr!
On our drive back we stopped to do a small hike up to three waterfalls. It was pretty muddy and steep, but a nice view. It reminded me of Colorado, and I know Mom and Dad would have loved to see these (pictures will be posted!)
Getting back into town, both of us starving, we decided to stop for pizza. Once again another delicious meal from Chile! Soccer playing in the background on the restaurants TVs, of course :) Felipe explained to me that most people follow whatever team their family follows, or their university or city. His team, Universidad Catholica was playing and won their game that night. After dinner we drove over to a place where locals go to have Terremoto, a Chilean drink that means "earthquake" made with a local liquer and pineapple ice cream (I think that was the flavor?). Super sweet. It's funny how much I stick out at a place like this -- my blond hair and light eyes don't exactly make me blend in. Haha. It was super fun though and we decided to go over to another place where we ended up running into the Canadians we met at the first Kayak hostel! They had met up with some other Americans and brought them out to enjoy their first night in Pucon. We ended up going over to a casino for dancing and ended the night with some food from another little local sandwich shop. Such a fun night!
