... given several bags of food, and told to take the following day off.

Shangri-La is a Chilean style lodge with about 40 beds all separated throughout 8 cabaņas. There is a also a small restaurant that is not currently open, but during the summer is open daily. The property backs up to a gorgeous river with stunning view of the Andes in the dominating the background.

Later that evening we met Gustavo, a 34 year old Chilean man ...

OLD and never posted- Maybe I'll open a lodge

Today was a crazy day.

I woke up at 6:15, went to set up breakfast for 7, served it, talked with Hernen and Pato, the regulars, a bit, cleaned up and then headed to the vineyard to weed. Don Cele told me what to do, and I set about pulling out those pesky molestias for about 3.5 hours. I have the farmer's tan/sunburn to prove it. It was surprisingly relaxing. Mostly because every time I looked up from the ground I realized I was sitting in a vineyard, ...

Well I must be doing something right. I have officially been put in charge of the lodge for a few days. Will and Carolina left me in charge on Friday as a sort of practice and now I am in charge until Wednesday..that means making, serving, and cleaning, bfast, lunch and dinner, cleaning the rooms, bar tending at night, and in my "spare" time from that I get to water all the gardens, weed, ...

No hablo Ingles

... taste some wine! So, with my excellent Spanish skills (not), nice smile and a little cash, I set out to hire a driver to take me around all day to different wineries. I found a cab driver who spoke absolutely no English and explained what I wanted as best as possible in my limited Spanish. I must have done an ok job because he understood me. He just thought I was absolutely crazy. Nobody does that here! Especially without reservations anywhere...since that's the only way to ...

    Beautiful but quirky

    We arrived at around 9pm rather tired and hungry. It is such a shame that there is not a better welcome for late arrivals at Casa Silva. We raided the mini bar (why only a half bottle available) and had a $5 packet of crisps. A small welcome platter with cheese and biscuits would be easy to provide. The night guard had very little information and certainly there's no information in the rooms or public areas. The night guard did not tell us that the clocks were changing in Chile that night. The house is beautiful, the location stunning, the tour charming but the welcome and the lack of information on arrival make it a very quirky place to stay
