That's Entertainment

... Mr. Tompkins!!! The campground (camp volcano) was a beautiful place with a green that may put an english park to shame. I set up my tent, just to put it down an hour later, because this place was infested with all sorts of flying insects. A feast for hungry birds, a plague for me. Because wearing long trousers and a longsleeve shirt when it's 30 degrees is not an option (I really gave it a try) I set up the inner tent in the shadow qnd spent the rest of the afternoon ...

What the info didn't tell us was that it was almost straight up the mountain. Ascending steep steps and slippery wet ladders made of wood we climbed past several nice waterfalls through thick dense rainforest.

Flirting with volcanoes again and Pumalin at last

The next day we had to pass through the devasted town of Chaiten. This used to be one of the main ports in the region but several years back it's namesake volcano erupted and buried half the town under volcanic ash. The place has barely started to recover and many of the town’s houses are still derelict or buried under a couple of feet of ash. To make matters worse the volcano is still dangerously unstable ...
