We had noticed a really neat restaurant called the Tree House on our way in to Monte Verde, so we went to check it out. The restaurant was rightly named, as it was built around a massive tree. There was a beautiful spiral staircase that wound around the trunk up to the second level, and lamps were hung in the ...

We did a bit of souvenir shopping and then went to the supermercado to buy a few things for dinner. We were all buying bits and pieces for an antipasto plate to share. Then we walked back...uphill back to Historias lodge. We spent the afternoon having a few drinks, watching our travel videos from the last few days and then watching YouTube videos before our tasty tapas ...
