Why Wait!? - OTHER - May 6, 2012 - Journal Entry
from castro to the parque nacional chiloe. again, we found out that we could not camp in the part but found a great little cabana and restaurant close by. the owner was quite charming, inviting us to his house to talk about relationships, the psyche of the chilean people, his life and other interesting topics.
