During the fast passage in Santiago, we visit an exhibition of Dali in an old station.
We continue our descent along Chile. Of course, being in winter, the weather is worst and worst in the South.
The thermal baths of Pucon are just happiness at 40° Celsius with an external temperature nearly frozen.
We try to reach the ski resort. The weather is awful.
Wind, snow, fog... the ski resorts are all closed.
all comfort !!!
the 40th roar !!
We cannot sleep in the night. The truck swings all night. We spend all week in a storm in Chile.
We decide to cross the border and reach Argentina on the other side of the Cordillera.
We find mountain os snow. We are the only vehicle crossing the border without chains. The sight is amazing !!
The trucks are pulled by the snow-plough
