Arrive in Castro
Find out we forgot to transfer money so can’t take any out
Try to not spend any money for a day
Emma eats a milcao*
Walk around trying to find somewhere to stay
Find a hostel in a palafito (house on stilts over the water)
Emma gets excited about a seagull
After extensive googling we realise we are being silly worrying about the dog bite

Try the local dish Curanto. Emma doesn’t like it, I do. I eat hers
Go to cultural centre for music
Emma eats a banana split
Go to a town called dalcahue and see sea lions, or something we believe to be sea lions

Try to walk to Castro art gallery 2KM out of town, get a taxi when it starts raining and find out it’s closed when we arrive
Ask the taxi to take us back into town

Buy unusual looking potatoes and make mashamole (mash with avocadoes). Emma doesnt like it, I do. I eat hers
