from santiago, we've headed south for a few days to a sleepy little town called pucon. it's about an 8 hour drive straight down a freeway- don't forget to drive on the right side of the road. i was amazed at the huge fuel stations dotted along the way. you pull in at the fuel pumps and there's someone there to fill it up for you- and it's freezing cold!
you can do a few things here in pucon. hot springs, climb a volcano, play the pokies at the casino. it's a pretty cool place to stop for a little while- kind of feels like margaret river back home- minus the pokies of course- and the hot springs
