Today we flew from Santiago to the Patagonian port city of Puerto Montt. It was founded by German immigrants in 1853. We traveled through the countryside of Patagonia to Puerto Varas. Along the way we stopped for lunch at a German restaurant. The schnitzel was great and Damian and I tried a few different Chilean German beeras.
We arrived at the hotel in the afternoon. My room has a terrific view of the lake and mountains.
A little later we all took a walk into town. Of course the moment we left it rained and it did not stop until we returned to the hotel. We walked around and viewed some local crafts. We evern stopped for some hot chocolate and a crepe.
Back at the hotel we sat in bar by the fireplace and overlooking thel ake and mountains. I played cards with my dad. At 9:20PM (yes it was still light out!) we went for fdinner. Damian and I tried a few more different local beers.
