We conquered the Volcan Villarrica!!!
With style too, I might add. Take a gander at those snazzy bright green suits we got to wear for that incredible excursion up to an elevation of 9,340 feet. Looking down on the clouds was pretty spectacular if you ask me.
As Dr. Koesler mentioned, today is pretty laid back. Most of the group is out horseback riding right now, and we have plans for a pizza dinner and then the White Elephant gift exchange tonight. Just to rub it in, I simply have to mention that the windows are open here in the hostel and the weather is amazing. Christmas weather could not be better in my opinion.
Our only complaint as a group is probably some of the funky sunburns we ended up with and a little bit of physical pains, but otherwise, we are all well here though missing our loved ones for sure.
I´m working on getting some more pictures up now. As you can see I´m adding a few new ones onto the sidebar, but I´m also putting a few more on my personal Flickr.com site if you want to check there as well. Click here to jump over to those. Enjoy!
