Temuco, Chile - 2nd September 2010

By: Leslie

At last there is nice weather over here! Also it's starting to be warm! :D
We went for a walk around Leslie's house. She lives in the very edge of the city, so the ocuntryside is just 5 houses away from hers!

Traveling south, Chile - 3rd September 2010

By: Leslie

We headed to a city 339 Kms south from Temuco, called Puerto Montt! I'm really excited, I heard this city has a port internationally known called Anglemó, and I'm going to visit it!  :cyclops:
The drive was 5 hours long, but it was fun because we were sitting on the front seat of the upper level of a double decker bus!

Puerto Montt, Chile - 4th September 2010

By: Leslie

In the morning we went to explore the city centre, which is right by the sea  :rolleyes: The day was cloudy but still we could see nice views, like this church whose dome is made of copper! :stare:

Puerto Montt, Chile - 5th September 2010

By: Leslie

In the morning we explored the house and found some nice stuff, like this couple of chilotes (people from an island in the south called Chiloé)

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Regit%20Brown/DSCN8825.jpg?t=1284609458

This is a baby Araucaria, they are very rare to see and take around 600 years to grow up

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN8875.jpg?t=1284661929

This wooden shoe lamp was made by Leslie's grandfather long ago

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN8877.jpg?t=1284661931

And these pictures were painted by him as well...

Puerto Montt, Chile - 5th September 2010

By: Leslie

In the afternoon we went to the mall, but first we took some shots in the city. I can't say I was taken, because I drove the car myself! luckily the police (the green car in front of me) didn't see me, because I think chipmunks aren't allowed to drive, are we?   :cyclops:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN8941.jpg?t=1284674382

This statue is very very famous, there's even a song that tells the story of these two lovers! you can watch it here

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN8951.jpg?t=1284674391

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN8956.jpg?t=1284674401

There was this chess board near the statue, but wait!... we dont have pieces to play with!  :o

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN8957.jpg?t=1284674416

This is the view from the restaurant in the mall where we were at  :D it's beautiful isn't it!?

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN8960.jpg?t=1284674419

Time to order!  :rolleyes:
Wait a second!! Look at those prices!!!  :o
Ohh... they're chilean pesos, so it's ok... we can order after all 
:p

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN8966.jpg?t=1284674433

After that, we went to a high part of the city to take these night view pictures, the city looks awesome from up there!

Puerto Montt, Chile - 6th September 2010

By: Leslie

Time to say good bye to this city and go back to Temuco...
I had a lovely time over here! I really liked it!
We traveled back on the front seat of the upper lever of a double decker bus!! So we had the best view AGAIN!!  :cyclops:

The toll rates

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN9001.jpg?t=1284740502

Here you can see Leslie... just a little relaxed  :p lol

Temuco, Chile - 9th September 2010

By: Leslie

The chilean indepencence day is September 18th, but in Leslie's high school it was celebrated on sep 9th, by the way, she's a student, not a teacher  :p
There were many traditional dances and lots of food in stands with typical decoration called ''ramadas''.

This couple are wearing the national costume.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN9060.jpg?t=1284842459

These masks are from a festival in the north called ''la tirana''

This is Leslie's best friend, she's wearing a dancing costume from the very north of Chile.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN9112.jpg?t=1284842530

This is called ''chilean salad'' and is made of onion, tomato and coriander.

Temuco, Chile - 18th September 2010

By: Leslie

Today is the independence day of Chile!  :stare:
And it's not any independence day, it's the bicetennial!  :cyclops:
We celebrated eating BBQ and going to a fair of traditions.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN9156.jpg?t=1285198958

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN9165.jpg?t=1285198973

This is the ''rodeo'' field, it's a chilean sport, very cruel by the way. The huasos (chilean countrymen) have to squeeze a cow against the wall and they get points for that. I didn't like it at all!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN9166.jpg?t=1285198977

Then we kept walking around the fair.

We saw these hourse spurs

Today I helped in the kitchen, we prepared  chicken with broccoli and leeks, it was so yummy!  :p
Of course I had some trouble at first trying to find the right ingredients, because I had no idea what they were  :thinking:
I learned that chicken is pollo in spanish, broccoli is brocoli, carrot is zanahoria and leek is puerro.:rolleyes:

Look what I found!! It's a treile egg! They're chilean birds, and it's very common to find their eggs on the grass in this time of the year, because spring just started here!  :rolleyes:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/DSCN9242.jpg?t=1285631389

I tried some empanadas, the national food of Chile, they're fried dough filled with meat, onion, one olive, and some other ingredients, they are really really yummy!!  :p

The next morning we woke up and went straight to the deck to see the view and then to the garden to see the plants and flowers!

Have you ever seen a flower like this? It's a tree called floripondio and the flower can be used as a drug, but it's not my case  :p
