Pucón, Chile, December 20, 2017

I had a fantastic sleep in my trusty tent and after breakfast went walking around the town.  I've been struggling the past 3 days trying to post my blog, so found a nice café and ordered an Irish coffee at 9 am.  I'm Irish and I like coffee so-

I ended up going through the actual website instead of the app and redoing 2 of the days.  Thank goodness I have been taking photographs of the pages so I just need to re-type and add the pictures.  Even that took all morning!  I walked back to the campground as the rain started and then spent the next 5 hours in the kitchen shack - as the rain poured down.  I sat in front of a fire visiting with Linda and Bob.  Eventually it let up a bit so I checked my tent.  Not so good.  It was wet under my thermarest and under my plastic shopping bag that holds my sleep gear.  I re-adjusted the tarp underneath that is a bit too big so the water gathers on top of it and flows underneath.  I'm going to cut it to properly fit .... Tomorrow!  After it stopped raining I came back to my café to look for a hotel!  I found one for tonight and as the sun comes out, my things will dry and it'll all be good tomorrow!

Pucón is an alpine town which reminds me of a smaller Banff or Canmore-

 Looking forward to my hotel tonight!
