An end and a beginning. The photo above is my bicycle in the central plaza in downtown Puerto Montt. After 24,750 kilometers (15379 miles) of distance and 216,974 meters (135 miles) of climbing, I have reached the end of my loaded touring for this trip. In ten days, I start the final phase, 2475 kilometers on a supported ride to Ushuaia. In the meantime, I will probably do some short rides around town and otherwise explore this area.
A short and straightforward ride today. Much of it was on the toll road above.
I could tell that my hotel was filled with Germans and not Argentinos. In addition to the language, the entire breakfast area was filled just a few minutes after the official start.
Once I reached downtown Puerto Montt and left the busy toll roads, I cycled downtown to find the central plaza. I came across this car procession for the upcoming election next weekend.
Apparently mote is a Chilean drink. Will have to try some.
Otherwise, it was a fairly short ride where I found a hotel for a week a short distance from the center of town. Now a chance to see what I find in this area…
