    ... now seven, life vests were hastily put on and we set off.

    I honestly did not have much of a clue what was going on most of that day I just nodded and threw in a few questions here and there to make sure I wasn't being sold to pirates or donating a kidney to a fisherman. For the most part I simply went with the flow and followed Celso's lead. Very glad I did. I got exactly the tour that I had wanted.

    We first sailed around the Choros ...

    ... now... Also bought the best bread I had in ages with Gouda cheese. Happy times :-) Yesterday was the last day so went with Alsy to Renaca beach (the best in the area) for fresh fruit juices, the best empanadas in the area and a tan. Very good, relaxing time! And send 3,7 kilo's of clothes, shoes etc home. No more city stuff needed from now on! Easy packing from now on ;-) Then home to freshen up, easy pack and say goodbye. Alsy, Daniel & Ricardo all accompanied me to ...
