... there summer holiday. Little known to us we were also there for a major Iron Man event, which saw the town swarming with way too many fit people. This was especially eye opening as so far Chilean's have definitely been more on the 'plump' side (we later found out they are the second biggest consumers of bread in the world, after Germany!), many carrying 3L bottle of some sugary drink under their arm.

The following day, Casey and I set out to conquer the imposing Volcan Villarica! This looms over the town, and is one of the more active volcanoes in the Andes. We climbed for 6 hours, as the volcano got steeper, icier, more slippery and windy; and eventually we made it! There were a few close calls - a ...
