    I was in Puerto Varas in 2008. I was fortunate to have a nice day where I saw Volcan Osorno clearly from the lake. What an amazing sight! Dawn

    What a fun cruise you had! Those snow-capped mts. behind Puerto Montt are beautiful, not to mention your fjord cruise scenes! It must have been worrying for those early German settlers to make such a move - I thought the same about Papua New Guinea!!

    Michael, fabulous page about this Chilean palce with so much German history. I really like the old steam trains. Also I would like to give the Kunstmann beer a try; "Das gute Bier" :-)

    I would better like to see a face of a german sheep-dog of that monument. German traces in South America - it's something! Several brilliant pics as well. Thanks Michael for another perfect page!
