So I like to be difficult- but only when I feel like I can get away with it.
More trouble? How bout the fact that I still need to re-cap my time in Colchagua Valle AND La Serena. Oops. Let's take a time out and I'll think of what to write...
Here- check out this pic I forgot to put up from the time my friends and I took a tour of La Moneda (the White House of Chile) where I also saw the VP of Chile!

|Look I have friends!|
|I've heard the process of making wine twice now but always in Spanish- not positive I still actually understand it though|
|Am I smiling because I love biking? Or because we were done for the day...?|

Pan Amasado is this wonderful creation
|Look at that- I found you a nice lil' inforgraphic|
Other food on this trip included a new to me dish that I actually enjoyed way more than I thought I would; Lomo al Pobre// Poor Man's steak. which looks a lil' something like this:
|Not my pic obvi- but here's a close up|
If there is something I learned in Chile (actually I really had to resort to this survival skill in India.....) is that if you are served food (especially free food) you should try to eat it. It may be good- it may be unhealthy- but you won't die. In fact it's probably necessary if you don't want to live on bread (or rice if you are back in India). So the moral of the story is that although this wasn't the healthiest meal I've had here, and at first I was like ew, I don't want fast food fries and a fried egg, but after I tried the homemade fries and dipped them in that nice runny yolk I was actually quite content. Salty fries are almost as good as salty popcorn(;
After we were nice and filled up we biked more, kayaked some and had a lovely little asado (Chilean BBQ) the weekend was over before I knew it.
|I'd say we biked a good 40km that weekend|
|These kayaks were the topsy turvy type- hardcore for the (non-existent of course) cat. 5 rapids|
