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.
