I know what I did last summer

Indiscriminate, Photography thoughts on May 5th, 2008 by escargot

After three months I finally selected, cropped and resized the pictures I took this summer. I will add Google Maps links to all locations involved.

Pichiquillaipe, X Región, Chile

With my girlfriend and friends we went to Puquelihue, my parent’s land in Pichiquillaipe, these are some of the few pictures I managed to take from those days. Sadly my camera was broken the first night, somehow someone’s knee used it as pillow.

Cascadas, X Región, Chile

Some days after we gathered a team and went camping again, this time to my friend’s land near Ensenada, at the Llanquihue lake and next to the Osorno volcano.

Chiloé, X Región, Chile

My sister and her friends, one of my own and myself went to Cucao, a small town in Chiloé, there was supposed to be a huge “Fiesta de la luna”, Party of the Moon, for the moment of the year when the moon more closely looks. At first we were in Castro where we visited some places and waited to take a bus to this lost town in the west coast, directly facing the eternity of the pacific ocean, after one night there we had to walk back 20 kilometers (or hitchhike, if you are lucky as my sister is) to get a bus back to civilization. Hot spot of that exhausting travel? Having a peek of a wild pudú (barely recognizable in the picture).

Argentina

Some time later with my family we went to the Argentinian Patagonia, where we traveled through the whole mountain-chain and through the desert mainly to visit an University I was interested into, secondly for vacations, it was summer afterall.
The travel was roughly said from Villa la Angostura to Neuquén.
We visited places like El Chocón, there was found the complete bone structure of a dinosaur and also fossilized footprints of the same creature.
Once we were back in Chile, we crossed the Pirihueico lake for 2 hours in a ferry, beautiful journey someone dropped even tears and not because of the chilling wind.

I beg you to understand the lack of detail of each trip, it was one hell of a work to collect these pieces of a puzzle called ‘last summer’.

PS: More to come in the next days. Less diary-like pictures.
