Day 20: A short hop to Puerto Montt
Argentina-Chile-Brazil Custom Trip
• Larer, we took a local bus to Puerto Montt, a nearby port city. We visited the market place. What a dump, but nice to walk around. The highlights: seafood and cheeses sold out of a wheelbarrows (really!).
• We returned to Punta Varas, again by local bus and strolled the downtown which up to now had no chance of visiting.
• Dinner was at a local dive (Don Jorge) where Natan & Maggie were the only tourists. There was a soccer game on TV, and the locals were cheering every time their team was on the offensive. Natan had a good stake, fried in a pan, and Maggie had a pretty disgusting bowl of seafood mix (the kind of mix we saw earlier in the wheelbarrows).
