Quiet Paradise in Bahia Inglesa, Chile

Bahia Inglesa, the English Bay, in Chile I Arrive in Bahia Inglesa Slouched over their sand-flecked pushbikes, four young Chilean men ogle me curiously, their heads tracking my slow movements down the sidewalk. Inside a small corner store and through the window of a beach side seafood restaurant I feel the eyes of shopkeepers and bored waiters watching with interest as I struggle with my 20 kilo backpack downhill from the taxi rank,...

I was in Punta Arenas, where the Chilean Andes meet the Straits of Magellan. The first surprise of the day was the Cementerio Municipal, a walled, flower-riot of a gem where the paths are marked with street signs. Los Gladiolas and Las Margaritas (the flower,...

My Last Day in South America

On my last day in South America, I wake up to the calm sound of rain falling atop the metal roof.  Two days before I was tanning on a cushioned lounge chair along the water of Mancora Beach, Peru my mind dizzied, almost drunk, on sun and relaxation. But now I am in Quito, Ecuador on a rainy morning and my mind is dizzying from the prospect of leaving this great continent. As the rain taps, I work to fall back asleep, back into dream,...
