Quick Update   Leave a comment

Tuesday 21st October – we travelled from Puerto Varas in Chile to San Carlos de Bariloche in Argentina.

Wednesday 22nd October – rest day in Bariloche to thoroughly sample the excellent local chocolate (and admire the gorgeous setting of the city in the Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi, of course).

Thursday 23rd October – we are now in Trevelin (south-west of Esquel), the village of the mill, founded by Welsh settlers in 1889. Still two Welsh tea houses and plenty of Welsh names about – our cabaña is called ‘Ty Gwyn’, the white house.

Friday 24th October – tomorrow morning we will head to the border and enter Chile again; then we will try to get as far as possible from Futaleufú towards the Carretera Austral and further south – Santa Lucía, La Junta and maybe even to Puyuhuapi.

Internet is already flaky and we don’t expect major improvements until we’ve reached Coyhaique. Buses will become a rare occurrence, too, we have heard – nothing and no one seem to move during weekends in this part of Patagonia and some connections run only thrice a week. Wish us luck…

Pictures – as could be uploaded so far – can be found here.
