Still Here

Things here in Frutillar, Chile have been great. We stumbled upon a great place to hang out while Jason’s gone. But we haven’t done much, sort of a little break from traveling I guess.

Our cabin is nice, pretty small but it has a toaster and a microwave so that seems really deluxe.  The floor is covered with cars, legos and army men. We sleep in, we do some work, we go to the beach. We thought about going to the museum, but ‘the best museum of German colonial history in the area’ didn’t really grab us.

I also wanted to go see The Magic Flute, but Bode said he’d rather climb the rock wall and play chess. That sounds pretty good, too.

    The museum is actually not that bad! I recommend it. We loved their water mill and the old settlers house on the hill with all the things “German” from two centuries ago… The history (and right-wing religious background) of the Germans in this region is nothing to be proud of, but I think this continues more so in today’s life, where many influential people in the south of Chile are still proud to be of German origin, even if they don’t speak a word of the language anymore, on the other hand not many indigenous people left. So, will you boycott businesses because of their German owners?
