    Sunset at Chaiten

    January 7, 2018 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    We were dropped back at Chaiten at around 9 pm. For the 1st time we saw the surrounding hills and views. The sky had cleared and the sun was setting. The village looked so different tgan what we had been used to till now. We walked back to our cabaña just as Hristo and Maria came back from their dinner. Inside the compound of our hotel, we met Bernardino and Jose again. This was the father and son pair that had trekked with us in the morning and we had become friends. They had not got off at the Amarillo springs to come back to Chaitén to find a place to stay and had eventually decided to stay at the same place as we were. Melinda invited them to come to dinner with us and we went to the only pizza place (the only open place) in town. We had our dinner over some nice conversation and came back to the hotel to sleep around 11 pm.Read more
