Puerto Montt, Chile - 1st September 2011

By: Leslie

It was time to fly back to Temuco. The sky was a little cloudy near Puerto Montt, but as we came closer to Temuco it was cloudier and everything looked gray...

Remember Llanquihue lake? back there is Osorno volcano, but it was covered by clouds...

I think that cloud over there looks like an elephant!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4036.jpg

And this one like an axe  :p

Temuco, Chile - 7th September 2011

By: Leslie

Hi Mum!

We have been in Temuco for almost a week already, but the weather has been horrible and we couldn't go out until today, finally!

We visited a museum about different native chilean races. I learned about mapuches and onas, and some other ones whose names I can't remember  :thinking:

This is it, a big old house. The museum section was in the basement.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9351.jpg

On the ground floor there was a little shop, I was welcomed by these nice ladies  ;)

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9363.jpg

I saw this mapuche musical instrument, kultrún, like the ones they were playng on the mapuche new year celebration, remember mum??

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9356.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9359.jpg

Then we went down to the basement, where the real interesting things were!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9371.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9367.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9368.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9374.jpg

:o

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9378.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9379.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9385.jpg

Wow! Look at all that jewelry!!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9390.jpg

I don't know about you mom, but I don't particularly fancy these shoes...!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9395.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9399.jpg

I liked this paiting of mapuche people gathered around a totem! There you can see someone playing a kultrún as well!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9410.jpg

And that's it. I really enjoyed today!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/IMG_9401.jpg

See ya!

:D

Temuco, Chile - 16th September 2011

By: Leslie

Ahoj mami!

I just learned that the independence day of Chile is on September 18, so everything is already decorated and you can hear cuecas everywhere!

Today we went to a mall and there was a really nice decoration!  :rolleyes:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/IMG_9493.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/IMG_9486-1.jpg

Then we had some cheesecake to give Petunia a proper welcome :p

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/IMG_9496.jpg

I heard that we might be traveling somewhere tomorrow, but Leslie hasn't told us anything official yet...  :thinking:

Bye bye! :rolleyes:

Leslie told us we'll travel tonight to spend the national day in Puerto Montt tomorrow! :D
We helped hanging a big flag in the garden and got a little patriotic as you can see  ;)

Todos los Santos lake, Chile - 18th September 2011

By: Leslie

Hi mum!  Today is the independence day!  :D
We slept on a bus last night and woke up in Puerto Montt today in the morning!  :rolleyes:

This is the view from the house we are staying at! Very very beautiful, don't you think so!? :cyclops:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4001.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4003-1.jpg

But we didn't spend the day here, we went to a beautiful lake called Todos los Santos, to celebrate eating skewers :p

On our way we saw Calbuco volcano, which looks more like a big mountain to me, but it is a volcano, at least that's what Leslie said...

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4004-1.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4005-1.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4006-2.jpg

Leslie said "the bigger we see Osorno volcano, the closer we are to the lake" so according to the size of the volcano we must be quite close!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4007-1.jpg

Here it is!! Todos los Santos lake!  :D

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4008-1.jpg

Look at all the beautiful mountains back there!  :rolleyes:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4009-1.jpg

Look at me! I'm standing on a volcanic rock!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4010-1.jpg

We moved to a picnic table right there in the lakeside and helped with the skewers!  :p

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4011-1.jpg

Yummy!! I'm not so sure about being a vegetarian anymore...  :p

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4012-1.jpg

Later we went to the Petrohué waterfalls which are the river mouth of Todos los Santos lake.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4015-1.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4016-1.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4385.jpg

I really enjoyed this independence day even if we didn't get to see any national traditional stuff!  :rolleyes:

Bye!

Puerto Montt, Chile - 19th September 2011

By: Leslie

Hola Mamá!

Today we wanted to see the city where we are, so we got ready to go on a little city tour!  ;)

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4401.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4402.jpg

First we went to a high viewpoint where we could see all the gulf and a part of the city... there was an extremely cold wind up there!!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4403.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4404.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4405.jpg

Then we went to the main square which is by waterfront! in fact all the city centre is by the waterfront! It's very nice!

There were three flags, the chilean one in the middle and the other two are Puerto Montt flags.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4406.jpg

I liked this monument very much. It shows the arrival of the settlers to the south of Chile.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4407.jpg

Next to the sqare there was this nice church with a huge dome made of copper!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4410.jpg

We sat to rest for a little while on a bench with a nice mosaic in the backrest :rolleyes:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4408.jpg

And I found this nice fish mosaic in another bench!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4409.jpg

Then we kept walking through the waterfront...

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4411.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4412.jpg

This huge monument is called "sentados frente al mar" (seated by the sea). This couple is very famous and they even have their own song!!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4413.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4414.jpg

Then we headed to the port area, where all the fishing boats and some ferries were.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4416.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4415.jpg

There were some stands selling seafood... This crab caught my attention!  :stare:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4418.jpg

Then we went back home...
What a nice day we had!
But we weren't tired enough to let it end already...  B)

Puerto Varas, Chile - 19th September 2011

By: Leslie

Later in the night we went to Puerto Varas, a very touristic and beautiful city, famous for its casino and church ...and guess what... I went to both!  :D

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4419.jpg

Wow, not bad!  :D

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4420.jpg

And then we won quite a big amount!  ;)
We decided to give some to Leslie to thank her for her hospitality, and spend the rest ourselves!  :D

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Fiona/DSCN4047.jpg

I'm having such a good time here!

Bellavista, Chile - 20th September 2011

By: Leslie

Hi mum!

Today we went to a parcel called Bellavista (which means beautiful view) First we drove down a road by Llanquihue lake for about one hour, by the way, this is the lake that I saw from the plane last time, remember?

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4281.jpg

This is it. What a beautiful view!  :)

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4284.jpg

Look at that! Llamas! Just like Fiona!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4288.jpg

I wanted to get closer to see if I could talk with them.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4289.jpg

This one seemed interested in talking with me, so she came closer  :D

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4290.jpg

We talked for a long time, I told her about my voyages around the world, and then another one came to hear my stories!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4294.jpg

They were both amazed by my adventures!  :D

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4296.jpg

Then I wanted to see the other animals around, but they were behind a fence.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4298.jpg

But there was an emu near me, so I went to talk to him!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4302.jpg

But he wasn't so social... after a little chat he stood up and left...

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4317.jpg

Anyway, it was such a good day!  :D

Bye!
Timothy

Calbuco, Chile - 22nd September 2011

By: Leslie

Hi Mum!

Today we went to a little town called Calbuco which is half on an island and half on the continent.

On our way we stopped at this lagoon. Leslie said that many birds from far away come here to breed and this is the season when you can see them!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4197.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4195.jpg

Then me and the others went closer to hear the singing of the birds, which was very loud and relaxing!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4200.jpg

Then we went down to the water to see if we could find any baby bird or egg...

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4199.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4202.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4203.jpg

But we didn't find any... all the birds flew away as they saw us!  :thinking:

Then we kept driving to Calbuco and on our way we did some stops to take photos  :rolleyes:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4205.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4206.jpg

From up here I could see Osorno and Calbuco volcanoes back there.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4212.jpg

There were some nice sheep and lambs by the road  :rolleyes:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4216.jpg

After a while we got to Calbuco finally! This is the main square, there is a very nice view from up here as you can see in the back!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4236.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4241.jpg

And this is the main church of the town.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4235.jpg

What a nice day!

Bye,
Timothy

Hi mum!

Today was the day to go back to Temuco! In the morning we packed our stuff and after lunch we took our bus for our 6-hours drive through the green roads of the south of Chile  :rolleyes:. We traveled on the front seats of the upper level of a double decker bus  B)

Temuco, Chile - 6th October 2011

By: Leslie

Hi mum!

Even though the independence day was a few weeks ago, today we wanted to cook traditional food, so Leslie suggested empanadas!  :p

First we cooked the "pino" which is a mixture of beef, onions, garlic, olives, egg, salt and oregano.

Then we prepared the dough, cut it in pieces, filled them with the "pino" and fried them, and that's it! we are done! We took the liberty of cooking some of our size, so they were easier for us to eat  :p

We also had "digüeñes" for salad, which are orange mushrooms that grow on some trees in this time of the year, they taste very good with vinegar and coriander!  :p

See you soon mum!
Timothy

Cunco, Chile - 15th October 2011

By: Leslie

Hi mum! How are you?

We are having a crazy weather over here, one day it's sunny and warm and the next it's rainy and cold!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4651.jpg

Today we made a little trip to a Town called Cunco and found a museum (which was closed  :() but we were still able to sneak in the garden where there were some Mapuche totems, very cool stuff!  :)

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4654.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4657.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4661.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4662.jpg

Also in the garden there was this "ruca", a traditional mapuche house, of course they're not used nowadays anymore... I also learned that most of them have cone shape and their doors made of straw... so this is a pretty luxurious one  :p

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4666.jpg

Here we are standing on a volcanic rock  :) There were lots of them since Cunco is near a volcano called Llaima. See? I'm learning a lot of geography!  ;)

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4672.jpg

Then we drove a little south until we got to a lake called Colico. :rolleyes:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4678.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4682.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4684.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4688.jpg

Then we started looking for a place to rest and watch the sunset.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4710.jpg

This trunk looked pretty comfortable  :)

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4715.jpg

How beautiful!  :rolleyes:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4719.jpg

After the sun set it started to get very cold and the mosquitoes were buzzing around, so we hurried back to the car and drove back home to Temuco.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Timothy/DSCN4720.jpg

It was a very nice day!
Miss you!
Timothy

Temuco, Chile - 17th October 2011

By: Leslie

Hi mum!

Today the sky was blue and there was a nice temperature! Ideal to go out and take pictures... but we did none of that and instead went to the centre to some borring offices! :mad:... Although in one of the offices there was a nice mural showing two snakes. Leslie said they're called "Trentren & Caicai" and they are from a Mapuche leyend about the creation of the world!  :stare: very interesting!

See you soon!
Timothy
