We are still on the gringo trail. We were quite shattered after a full day traveling on the bus (funny that), so we hit the sack. Our six bed dorm was amazing. The beds were comfy, it was quiet, and just well put together. Pucon is laced with things to do! Our hostel is perched on the lakefront ...

We took a walk down to the lake to see the sunset. The lake turned gold and the sky turned pink. Even the volcano turned pink for a short while.
We picked up some food at the supermarket to cook at the hostel, it seemed a waste not to use the huge kitchen. It had been a while since we last cooked, maybe Honduras in June, but Maria managed to knock up a half decent pasta.
