Photographer's Note

Following up on my Patagonian travelogue, the ferry from Chiloe took us to the town of Chaiten (Pop 5,000) and the largest town in about 600 or 700 kilometers.

A few years ago there was a sitcom called NOrthern Exposure which was set in a lonesome alaskan town, that is what Chaiten reminded me off. Chaiten has a ocuple of paved streets has a frontier feel and is the northern end of the mythical Austral Highway a gravel road which goes through hundreads of kilometers of wilderness.
My plan was to find out the time for the only bus of the day and try to hitchhike up until the bus left, if I found no ride I would take the bus.
Happily on the boat I found a nice south african couple with a rented truck who took me along with them for three days, allowing us to stop on the way.
