go rafting!!

among other adventures like biking, backpacking, horseback riding and wine tours, there is white water rafting. cascada de las animas (the tour provider) showered me with amenities too lengthy to list. in a nutshell, a very comfortable cabin, a restaurant with a kick ass view of the river from the outdoor tables, and some really useful tips to follow when having fallen out of the raft.

from santiago, you can take a bus (yeah, i don't remember the exact number or how to navigate) or you can just take a cab to the maipo river. cab is not too expensive, especially if you are willing to let the driver pick up other passengers along the way. it cuts the cost.

this is just one of the houses we passed that was close to the entrance to the cascada de animas. i like rundown buildings and dwellings that look lived in.
