Heurquehue Park near Pucon

Pucon is situated on another beautiful lake with its very own volcano. This volcano spat out red flames during the night. I tried to photograph it but did not have the correct lens nor a tripod so the result was unsatisfactory but I’ll show it anyway in another blog.

For this blog I want to show images of the park we visited about twenty kilometers from Pucon

Villarica and Lican Ray

We couldn’t visit the Villarica volcano without a car so all I could do was photograph it from a distance.

Instead we decided to take a bus to the lake at Lican Ray which turned out to be well worth a visit

Photos of Bus trip to Villarica

Here is the blog for Villarica::

I decided to take you on the bus trip from Temuco to Villarica. I always try to get on the right side of the bus. However taking photos through a bus window never leads to pin sharp images. That said I love seeingĀ  people getting on and off buses, the anxious, the fussy and the cool dudes all make good subjects. So forgive the quality and enjoy the scene,

CholcholĀ 

This should have been a Mapuche village but there was very little evidence of the Mapuche way of life here. We visited the tiny museum which was manned by three women who would have been better pleased if we had not bothered!!! Here is an image of some of the display

We took a short walk around the village to see if we could find any evidence of the Mapuche but all we found were traces of modernity
