Castro, Isla Chiloe, Chile

Visited UNESCO World Heritage sites on the Island of Chiloe, three different churches, and also a museum where we learned about the life of the people here.  One of the most interesting parts of the tour were the palacitos, wooden houses built on stilts along the Gamboa River. The folks harvest shellfish and clams when the tide is low, and go fishing when the tide is high.  Yesterday we visited Puerto Chacobuco, Chile where we hiked a trail to a waterfall on a nature preserve, enjoying the beauty of the perennial rainforest.
