After another full day bus trip we have made it to Puerto Natales, Chile.  The big thing in town (actually 2 hours out of town) is the Torres del Paine National Park and we´ve got some pretty good plans for making the most of it!  The past couple of days we´ve explored the town, met the mascot, had some Cristal and the strangest pizza I´ve ever tried and spent a lot of time preparing for the park.

Very strange pizza - Chorizo and eggs!

Tomorrow morning we head out bright and early for 2 days of horseback riding with Criollo Expeditions.  They have been really helpful with planning out our trip, and we can´t wait to meet the horses and get riding! (Don´t worry parents, I´ll wear a helmet and they assure me that the horses are “almost too quiet”)  After our riding expedition we´re heading straight into the park for 4 to 5 days of backpacking – depending on how fast we walk.  The park has many campgrounds and refugios we can stay at, and we´ve rented a tent and some sleeping bags and gear, so we´re pretty well set.  Anyhow, no posts for a week or so, but we´ll have plenty to say when we get back!!!
