CHILE | Thursday, 19 March 2015 | Views [422]

The weather is not so good today, but we found a tourist information and arranged a private minibus to take six of us to the Parque National Vicente Perez Rosales.  This involved a river, waterfalls and a lake.  We then drove up the volcano to 1250m. We did a short walk as the weather was bad and visibility poor through volcanic scree and managed to not get lost! We found our way to a nice hot chocolate and fires to try to dry our trousers. On the way back we saw a chilean fox.  Back in town we went to have a look at the church before going for dinner at a very nice fish restaurant Casa Valdes.  Hake was my choice accompanied of course with a glass of chilean white wine.
