MontevideoThe building behind the flag was begun constructed in 1957 and has not finished yet - due to financial technicalities. The building that was intended to be the ministry of justice is located at the centre square of Montevideo, and the president is thinking of moving his office here.Jun 04, 2006

Salmon Farm.The floating farms are moved regularly because they are very bad for the environment. The seabed is left dead beneath a salmon farm due to the food that falls to the bottom. It is through the food that the meat gets its colour and the colour is adjusted to the different markeds, e.g. Japan likes the salmon more red than europe does. May 05, 2006
IMG_10541.jpg
The calm inner sea.The islands east of the main island of Chiloé form a perfect habitat for farming salmon and mussels in the far end it is possible to see farms. Chile is now the biggest exporter of salmon in the world and Chiloé produces 60% of those in huge farms.May 05, 2006

Los PalafitosCastro is famous for its special fishing houses, the palafitos. They are however not so convinient during a zunami where the water level rises and takes all the houses to sea. This happened last in 1960 and only few of the houses have been reconstructed.May 05, 2006

The Wooden Churches of ChiloéChiloé is famous for its wooden houses and especially churches. The churches are protected by the UNESCO World Heritage Programme.

And now the fun part!!Sliding down the vulcano on the popo, was quite entertaining at first. Since it is a long time since it has snowed there are icy tracks left to slide in - like a bob-sledge. The ice-pic was used to control the speed. It later became a quite wet and dirty business... Apr 12, 2006
Pucon31.jpg
GassyIt was quite a pity that there was so much gas. On some days there is a fountain of lava, but we where only able to see gas. We where afterwards told that if we had held our camera further over the edge we would be able to see the magma. But it was also quite freaky to hear the bubling sounds!!Apr 12, 2006

Cheaters!Raphael and Graciella took the guides advice and took the lift. It proved that the first 400 vertical meters are the toughest on the trip. But it was nice warmup for me and Gerry - and we soon caught up with the two others.Apr 12, 2006
Pucon12.jpg
The sissies take the lift...The vulcano "Villarica" (2956m AMSL) is an active vulcano with a lava-pit down in the crater. Here we are at 1.400m. As it is a ski resort in the winter, you can take the lift up to 1800m. But the vikings walk all the way...Apr 12, 2006
