I've been slow to write this post because there's so much to say about Chiloe.
Chiloe is a lovely, special island.
We met the family who had just gone to buy this little lambie on the mainland, and we gave them a ride to their house on the island in Ancud. In typical Chilean style they insisted we stay for tea and sweets at their home. It's a wonderfully friendly, hospitable country.
Here are some pictures of the darling baby lamb.
He's only three days old. Yes, he's wearing a diaper.
We then drove further into the island to the small city of Castro, a lovely historic town on a large bay in the center of the island.
Here is the beautiful cathedral in Castro. (Ok, let me take another opportunity to apologize for being a crappy photographer. Actually, Kurt probably took these pictures. Maybe mine would have been worse!)
This is the great hostel where we stayed, Pallafito.
Here's the beautiful room where Kurt and I stayed.
There's a little town not far from Castro that is reputed to have the best, biggest, most amazing market in the area. I really, really wanted to go to the big Sunday market, but we were a day early. Still, it was lovely to browse the little shops and arcades.
Look how excited I am!
This weaver was very friendly. He told us all about his work, some of which I understood.
More to come soon. :)
