more of chile as we took off for lake rapel over the weekend to paty and jorge's boat. in spite of the weather (it rained and the winds were chillingly cold) we had a great time under cover inside the boat and then taking the little boat ashore to pedro pablo and francisca's house where we made ceviche and read poetry, sat around the fireplace and then danced into the night. i would have stayed another week but i have to pick up so many certificates and deeds and continue with the duty i came to achieve here. maybe next week i will venture down to puerto varas to my brother's summer house. i want so much to make this a vacation as well as a business trip.
