We found what we thought was a great little campsite right on the edge of Lago Puyehue and that night we were lucky enough to have a magnificent sunset over the lake. We also met two gurus of the overlanding world, Roseann and Jonathan Hanson they run overland expos in the US and write for several magazines. They were on their way north ...

On the boat journey back from the island we started to get a feel for the amount of wildlife ...
... walking along beautiful beaches and exploring the markets full of stalls selling dried knots or loafs of seaweed and strings of dried muscles. It really gave us a taste and feel for this island where the locals still believe in a myriad of myths, including ghost ships, witches and their deformed eunuch henchmen who are brought up on a diet of cats milk and human flesh, sea-serpents with the heads of a goat and trolls that are irresistible to women and ...
