Map Update

While in Chile, had a lot of trouble getting a hold of maps and guides because many tourist offices were closed/unhelpful/stingy with maps. Our work is your gain. The maps we collected are now available as PDF documents that you can download and print. Save yourself the hassle of collecting them later. :)

You can also find direct links to the maps, by scrolling down our right hand sidebar. Enjoy!

Chacala cont.

The next two days, we started with a morning walk on the beach. The whole cove was a little on the short side, but just enough to get our blood flowing pre-breakfast.

Our second day, we decided to do things Mexican style: sitting in one of the restaurants intermittently ordering a drink or snack, while mostly chowing down on our own food and drink from the cooler beside us. It's a very economical way to get some long term shade. We spent the day rotating between rounds of scrabble, cards, books, and of course the occasional dip in the water! The waves were just strong enough to be exciting, and mild enough to not cause any concern.

On our last day, we had to have some serious water and book time before checking out. We got some excellent fish to fill our tummies before the growing Sunday crowds and wading afternoon sent us back to the city.
