LOS ANDES, Chile- I took a bus here from Valparaiso today. I was told at the bus stations in Valparaiso that I would have to go to another city before transferring to Los Andes (again). Not wanting to do this I walked out of the terminal and the words “Los Andes” printed in bright bold letters on a bus placard caught my eye. This was where I was trying to go. So I bought a ticket, and here I am.
It is funny how often the people who are charged with providing information are incorrect. I was told that there were no direct buses to Los Andes, but then I found one a few steps away from where I was told this. Funny world, it seems as if I need to find things out for myself or be lead astray at all times.
I feel myself building lessons that I will take with me through all of my travels.
This is a really beautiful place. In the Andes. I went for a walk in the countryside. The feeling, the energy of the mountains!
