On our way into town Chase finally got to stop and see the Miladone up close. Apparently this statue is life size but as I mentioned before is extinct.
Even the signs in the town had pictures of the Miladone on it!
By the time we got into town both Chase and I where starving. When he stayed at the hotel in Puntas Arenas a cute couple told us we had to try the brewery. So for lunch we found the brewery and had a delicious lunch, completely by ourselves; meaning there was no one else in the whole restaurant. In Puerto Natales most people are gone during the day on different excursions so there are not many people around during the day.
After lunch Chase and I walked around town and looked in all the local shops. Everything for sale was made of alpaca or wood. It was fun to walk around town but there was not much to buy. We did see a knock off Wii and a huge pack of dogs.
We have no idea where they came from or how they survive the winter
We decided to walk back to the hotel instead of taking a cab but we had to hurry because we had to get back into town with our luggage to catch the bus back to Puntas Arenas.
The view on our way back, all the swans had white bodies and black necks and heads
The walk back took a little longer than expected most likely due to the fact that I kept stopping to look at everything one last time! So we had to really hurry in order to catch the bus back. Luckily we made it onto the bus which then drove us 3 hours to the airport. There we had to wait a few hours for our plane to depart. We finally arrived in Santiago at 1:30 in the morning and crashed once back in the apartment.
