Peurto Varas was a really nice town, right on the edge of the massive Lake Llanquihue, with two active volcanos in easy view (one only about 20kms away!) Luckily, neither erupted whilst we were there, although another one - Chaiten - about 150km away did, and we were told that if the weather changer direction, our town would have been completely covered in ash! We're guessing you guys must have seen or heard something on the news.
Anyway, we only really had one day to do anything, so 8 of us put our heads (and money) together, and decided to pack a picnic lunch (chicken & cheese rolls ..
On our last night (not only there, but in Chile as well!), we decided to buy more supplies and just stay home. We ate & drank out on the hostel's varandah, which was high up and had a nice view of the town and the lake below.
It was an enjoyable night before another early bus the next day ...
Argentina, here we come!!!!
