Portillo

From and around Santiago

With Ruthie I hitchhiked from Santiago to Portillo which is an old ski station that lies right before the border between Chile and Argentina, up high in the Andes Mountains. On the shores of Laguna del Inca we put up our tent, and went for a short evening hike, only to find the tent gone when we returned. After searching for hours in the dark without luck we had to give up, assuming that the wind had carried the tent out in the lake, so instead we had to make do with a couch in an old hotel not so far away, where they took pity on us and let us sleep for free in the lounge, as they didn't have any guests anyway.
