Committee meeting (25 km)

Up and down
Wetlands beside us
Birds of chiloe
Kept us company

The ride was very hilly, great shoulders along the way. We had done 25 km when a truck driver stopped ahead of us and asked us if we would like a ride the next 25 km to Castro. David and I had a quick committee meeting and I seconded the motion to get in the truck. Along the way the driver practised his colours in English and we talked about family etc. Indeed
it was a very hilly day and we arrived by 1 pm and checked into a hostel.

Castro is famous for its stilted houses (palmitos). This area suffered a devastating earthquake in 1960 but these houses were spared.
