    Once again sad to leave such a good hostel, but we took the bus to Chiloe on Saturday, another 4 hour bus journey and this included a short ferry crossing. We arrived in Castro the Capital of Chiloe mid afternoon just as the heavens opened! Luckily it was only a short walk to the hostel. We settled in, got some supplies and played ipad monopoly …

    ... Lonely Planet raves about this place but it did not meet the hype, however we both had a nice German style lunch and a couple beers.

    From Osorno we headed to the coast, the Lonely Planet described this stretch of coast as one of the most beautiful places on the planet that you have never heard of.

    ... beat layered with infantile lyrics synthesized by auto-tune. You quickly tire of group after group jamming in close proximity to one another because everywhere you go three or four songs are fighting for attention, including some awful renditions. And those damned kids who never seem to take their headphones off decide now is the time to transform their phones into amplifiers to bring the noise...Then you realize two things simultaneously: ...

    ... tsunami in 1984 took its toll it is now quite run down, half a day was plenty to have a look around and consume some fresh fish. It was a stop over for supplies to take for our 2 days in an Eco lodge in Chepu (a remote rural settlement on the coast). We arrived at the lodge in a taxi as there are only 3 buses a week and the setting was perfect. The main building over looked the sunken forest in which the ground level dropped by 2m after an earthquake in 1960, it was ...
