Valdivia - Chile

sunny 23 °C

After an 8 hour (not 5 hours as stated in the Lonely Liar) we made the trip from Bariloche to Valdivia, Chile. It is defined as, "perhaps the most attractive city in Chile".

Chile must have some pretty ugly cities as this place was hardly that inspiring.

True it is not ugly, it sits on a river and there are one or two reasonable buildings (not to mention the elephant and fur seals that reside here), but ChileĀ“s most attractive city?..... To be continued.

We spent 2 days here with not much to do other than reside and eat at a cheap restaurant called Schopdog that had the tackiest memorabilia since Fatty Arbuckles meets similar American diner. However, that is where the criticism ends.... they had awesome beer on tap and more avocado on their chicken burger than you can poke a stick at. This impressed the wife incredibly, and for Chile is a bargain.

Apart from eat and drink here, take pictures of the seals and meander around the City there was not much else to do here......

We decided to get to Santiago as quickly as we could, basically to get to a big city with big city trappings.....

Enough for now, will keep you updated.....
