Off to Pucon I went the next day and I was so excited, I've been wanting to come here since I moved to Chile, but it just hadn't worked out yet. I arrived and so did the rain. So I was a little bummed, no I was really bummed because I was the only one staying at my hostel and I was stuck in the rain.
