Pedro hooked me up well here. I’m writing from his family’s vacation home in Quila Quina, near San Martin de Los Andes. It is a tiny town with only about twenty year round residents. Many are Mapuche with their land protected due to it being in Lanin National Park. The area is perfect for short walks and swims in chilly, but refreshing, 600m deep Lago Lacar.
It was a long trip from Santiago, where I landed last Tuesday, the 5th. I waited for Sarah for a day, took a series of busses through Puerto Montt, spent a night in Bariloche and a night in San Martin. Each day got successively better!
