... to the outside world are shut off indefinitely. We will picture Curarrehue, overtaken by rain, where Sunday funeral processions carry caskets in the backs of pick-up trucks and the guests in school buses. We will NEVER forget Curarrehue.
As the bus drove toward the pass, still under water, but apparently shallow enough for the bus to drive through, we held our breaths and crossed our fingers that we would not get stuck. All of the bags were piled onto the passengers ...

manic bustling city – bring it on!
