We do breakfast  on our own in the common kitchen – banana,  mate coca, and chocolate!  Got a late start, with lots of goodbyes with the owners, complete with hugs.

We made good time going south on the great, paved Chilean road.  Stopped for lunch – cheeseburger and hot dog.  The scenery changes from Illinois to Colorado/Alaska.  We see trees (something we have not seen for ages), hills, more stuff that looks so familiar to us norte-americanos.  When we finally turn east after Osorno, it is too late to get  through the border, so we stop for the night at a rural hospedage.  A real dump, costs us $16 for a little cabin with no hot water.

We sit in the sunshine, then ride to the nearby lakeshore town of Entre Lagos for dinner.  When we return to the rural site, we are amazed by the display of stars in the southern sky.  A wonderful sight.

I settle for a cold shower,  and we fall asleep to the woodland sounds all around us.  Like camping  the in north woods of Canada.  Lots of wildlife moving and calling.  It is getting colder here, and the frost is on the pumpkin tonight!
