Have arrived in Chile after the usual extended jet travel. Thanks to Andrea and John Warner for the lift to the Vancouver BC airport.
Met by Christian and family once again who got me going south in Lula Belle on the Pan Am Highway in record time. Drove 9 hours to the coastal town of Quidico where I met up with Shirley Vander Veen at a tiny and very loud hotel (only bar in town) on a Friday night.
Saturday morning it is cold and raining. Won't be able to trap under these conditions so we will head north to find a beach in the sun. May need to return to Putu.
