I woke up this morning in Valdivia, the principal city in this southern province of Chile. Quite a beautiful one, situated at the juncture of four rivers: Rio Calle Calle, Rio Valdivia, Rio Cruces, and the Rio Cau Cau. I arrived here around 7:00 pm last night and as we drove past the Rio Valdivia, lined with a beautiful walkway, it was full of strollers, kids playing, and crowds gathered around food and beverage stands, giving it a holiday feel. The river was full of crew boats, kayaks, and tour boats which take visitors around the various rivers to the nearby forts, cloud forests and other attractions for which the region is known.
