Being a public holiday, breakfast started later than usual and the streets were deserted when we left at 8.30. We drove to Fruitillar, a quaint town on Lago Llanquihue.

When we arrived to our room, we were introduced to the English speaking employee (who couldn't really speak English and luckily Mirja's Spanish is pretty good). We both thought he was a bit arrogant but put it down to language/culture differences.
