Los Palafitos6 viewsCastro 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.
IMG_10571.jpg
Salmon Farm.6 viewsThe 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.

The gear.4 viewsThe coolest part of the trip was the metal set of dentures to strap under the shoes. With these things you could you run up the icy slopes without even thinking about it. I totally want a pair!

Gassy4 viewsIt 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!!

And now the fun part!!4 viewsSliding 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...

Ready for rafting!4 viewsWith all the gear we are ready to raft! We took the difficult river (class 4-5 out of 5). It was really, really fun, but not very wild.

The sissies take the lift...3 viewsThe 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...

Cheaters!3 viewsRaphael 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.
