Life is a highway, I want to ride it all night long
After a day at the volcano we headed down to Pucon, the beautiful nature region in Southern Chile. On the way there we stopped on the side of the road at what appeared to be some lady's house to have our 150th empanada for the week.
Then we got back on the road of endless tolls. Based on my calculation, we spent about, let's see....carry the 1, divide by Pi, distribute the coefficients, and, yes we spent about $70 going from Santiago to Pucon. On tolls!!!! I'm telling you Chile, these toll fees better be going to good use rather than supporting Juanita's empanada stand on the side of the road.
We arrived in Pucon at dusk, and just in time to take incredible pictures from our hotel room. We basically lived in an amazing log cabin that faced the lake and the volcano. We forgot what fresh air smelled like. It smells like volcanic ash.
