Chiloe, Castro..........and the penguins

Castro, Chile

We travelled overnight on the bus from Santiago & arrived on late on 7th Feb.......and compared to beautiful, colourful & sunny Valparaiso to be honest it looked & bit grey & was bloody cold! However as soon as we arrived as usual finding some great local food was first on our agenda- local fish & mashed potatoes which was just amazing. The town was very small, nothing really to visit as such it felt very much like a really old fishing village & that was about all there was to it. Very few tourists and lots of local markets. We weren't really sure what was there so we founds a great tourist info place & booked up a couple of bus trips.
The next day went to Ancud & saw penguins! We also went to a really small village about 2 hours away where they made 'curasco; which was basically a load of fish, sausages and potatoes cooked underground in between hot coals & leaves. It was a fantastic day
