Right now, Í´m in the little town called Villarica. Its about 11 hours south of Santiago by bus, and its truley an astounding place. Its situated on Lake Villarica, which is a crystal clear lake underneath the enourmous Vocano of the same name.
I met up with my friend Ryan in Santiago a couple of days ago, and we traveled down here together to his Uncle´s house. He lives on a nice plot of land, has a huge garden and we take showers with solar power heated water. It´s a very pleasurable, simple life.
Yesterday we went up to a different lake which was heated by volcanic activiy and basked in the sun. This region is heavily forrested and strikingly beautiful. Its very similar to the pacific Northwest of the U.S. Its definately my kind of area.
I´m not sure when the next time I´ll have internet service, we are about to head into the wild of Argentina. The scenery promises to become even more beautiful an entrancing.
