Well, the last few days have been fairly uneventful. The cold is slowly healing, but slowly. It made me feel spaced out and fairly tired, without much enthusiasm for making the most of these last few days. There was an indie pop night tonight at a well known alternative club I could have gone to, … Continue reading The end. New beginning?
This last week I partially succeeded in making the most of the tail-end of this trip to explore the Cajón del Maipo, a valley to the south-east easily accessible from Santiago as a 4/5 days getaway.

Bummer! There's someone up there that really doesn't want me to go to Barreal. Warning: some foul language ahead. Being clean-mouthed wouldn't accurately describe some of my thoughts. I took Monday as a rest day to enjoy the feeling of being back in Uspallata. I repacked my bags in order to be ready to leave … Continue reading Technical problems and the return of The Wind
