Diario de bicicleta ( Island of Chiloe, chile )

"The green and beatifull islan of Chiloe, where the air is soft, condition primitive and the farms overcowded; where there is always fish to eat and nothing much to do; and the women are fierce and energetic and the man are lazy and gamble away their earning " bruce chatwin / In Patagonia.
so this is my last hours on the island before i m taking the fery to chaiten is the begining of the carratera austral
south chile is now full with a lot of young chileans camping walkin and cycling.
and its nice atmosphire
the locals are rely freindly, for example i asked to feel my water in ahouse near the road and was invited to asado and in puerto montt i was invited to stay with a family.
i saw the first pingwins in nature i have ever seen, its a funny bird. and even a sea lutra.
for those of u whom complaining that there r no photos, i msorry that i dont have a digital camera, i will develop all the film wen i go back home and publish it
have to move
Castro, Island of Chiloe, chhile

You'll enjoy the caratera australl, just make sure you stock up on food whenever you have a chance. Some of the small towns do not have much in them. The Hanging Glacier NP is very good. Me and my wife cycled it five years ago, kept going all the way to Ushuaia. Is that your plan too?
Good luck, I'm very envious, sitting in my work cubicle here.......
