Bariloche to Santiago

sunny 60 °F

Today we took a two hour plane flight to Santiago, the capital of Chile. Just like the Corcovado looks over Rio de Janeiro, Virgin Mary looks over Santiago.

Bariloche

Day 2

overcast 60 °F

Today, we took a chairlift up to the top of the mountain. The view was great, but Jolie liked the Café better! (No surprise there!!!) We drove around a little bit in the town, and saw the old stone church. Later in the morning we went to visit a typical Italian-Spanish Bariloche School! The kids were very nice and spoke excellent english! In the afternoon we went shopping for a while and then we went ice-skating!

Puerto Varas to San Carlos de Bariloche

semi-overcast 58 °F

Today we drove five hours from Puerto Varas (and even saw a Dunkin' Donuts on the way!) to a boat port. We took a boat trip to an island where we hiked some trails and had some hot chocolate. Then, we caught a boat to our hotel in Bariloche.

Puerto Varas

Day 1 and 2

semi-overcast 57 °F

These two days we looked at an old German village to see how they used to live in the 17 and 1800's. We saw two of the seaside towns named Frutillar and Puerto Octay. We also saw a local fish and seafood market in town. In the evenings we watched the sunset over the volcanoes.
