... canvassing the tour shops for the best deal on walking up the volcano, and by the end of the day were pretty confidant we had found it. We lost count of how many tour companies there are in town and almost all of them offer the same tours, not sure how they all survive in the slow periods. Our accommodation in Pucon is a cute little hostel with the typical timber cabin construction that you see all around the world in alpine and lake areas. We decided it was time to have a room ...

... goes into his own brain. Or like Ronald Mc Donald's, eating at Mc Donald’s. Whatever.
The weather was windy but great, so I decided to chill out at the lake at the first day, and go swimming. Not so easy – the water was not more than 16 degrees or something. But Kasia, let me tell you, I swam ALL styles (ok, except one – guess which one :))!

A few bumps sent me out of the tunnels, at one point I was going a bit too fast, hit a bump and flipped on my stomach... Had to use my pick to stop myself! Lots of legs flailing widely. Fantastic! Mum and Dad - don't worry, it was predominately ...

... more icy and windier. It was difficult due to it being so foreign but probably easier than the dirt for the reason the shoes came into their own with the help of the crampons. We had ascended 800 metres of the 1400 to the summit before a disappointing decision was made. Despite the sun being out it was deemed too windy to continue and therefore we would have to turn back.
