Valdivia, Chile - 3rd May 2011

By: Leslie

I was invited to spend the weekend in Valdivia, a lovely city southern than Temuco. It rains a lot there, but I was lucky, the sky was blue and the temperature, well, a little cold, but nice :) First we walked through the waterfront.

On the way there was a market of sea food and veggies. I saw "chupones, chancle, castaņas"... and some more weird stuff...

There was someone selling mapuche jewelry! They are made of silver, and are very expensive. The biggest one is the ''trapelakucha'', only mapuche women with high status in their community wear them.

Then we headed back to the watefront to take a tour through the river  :)

We stopped at the ruins of an old house. The tour guide told us that it is said to be haunted  :o

...Haunted or not, the view was wonderful!

Then, when the sun was already down and the wind very cold, we headed to our last stop, an old church.
