Valdivia, Chile


After being moored for the better part of a year in the upper reaches of the Rio Calle Calle, Fallado was ready to head back out to sea. Our time in Valdivia had been well spent though. Fallado had been hauled out and given new bottom paint and other maintenance tasks attended to. During the depths of winter we had left her securely moored and taken a 4wd station wagon north, driving the length of the Pan Americana Highway right to the Peruvian border, then headed inland, climbing over the Andes and into Bolivia and Peru's mountainous regions. Sailing a traditional reed boat on Lake Titicaca and walking the Inca Trail to Machu Pichu were special highlights in an impressionable year spent living amidst contemporary South American society
