Valdivia Chile

May 2011 I was sent to a small town in Southern Chile to find a Canadian who had been in a car accident and take him to Toronto.  Valdivia is a small forest industry town on a river next to the Pacific with a pulp mill.  The people were extremely friendly and the beer and wine was fabulous!  It felt oddly like home…

The view from my hotel room. Weather was like September in Port Alberni, foggy in the morning and hot in the afternoon.

Since my hotel was at the river I ran along the handy river walk path.

Ran by a bunch of smelly Sea Lions!

Ran through streets with many two story buildings.

Police watching some kind of protest at a College. They rode cool green dirt bikes!

The architecture was old Spanish or newer German.

I couldn't resist stopping at the woodpecker pub!

This beer was so good I spent some time to hunt down a 'Kuntsman Beer' shirt!
