... ran into another Irish couple, Hugh and Eiffa (butchering that Irish name) who were also staying at our hostel. Luckily we found the short way back to the "trail" and started back towards home. We got picked up by a lovely woman who dropped us right back into town. We hit the very impressive super mercado for dinner provisions and our staple 1.25 L bottle of Carminare.

Arriving in the lake district town of Pucon dazed from another night-bus journey even our sleep deprived eyes couldn't miss the outstanding feature of the town, the snow covered, cone shaped giant of Volcan Villarrica, puffing out toxic fumes like some looming chain smoker. The pretty town is set next to a lake of deep blue, but is filled with tourist shops, which taints it a little. After having an Argentinian style breakfast of medialunas (small, glazed croissants) and coffee ...
