Chile: Puerto Montt

After 4 days in Pucon and our amazing adventure up Volcan Villarica we jumped on a bus heading further south to the port town of Puerto Montt. We had a restful night of sleep at Hospedaje Rocco just a few blocks from the Navimag Ferry terminal. We had check in at the ferry terimal for our ferry that was going to take us south through the Patagonian Fjords for the next 4 days.
After we checked in at the ferry and dropped our bags and 3+ bottles of wine and snacks for the trip, we took a stroll through the fish market. Wool yarn was everywhere. I still don't know what is hanging in that top picture - maybe seaweed or dried fish.
Later in the afternoon we boarded the Navimag ferry. Fortunately, we were on the boat in the back, not the foreground. :-)

{recap: I traveled to Chile during the month of February. I was distracted these past few months and am only now getting to post about my experience in South America. Click here to see all my posts about this fantastic Ph.D. Trip}
