Spiders

So we had a 3 day weekend here because of some holiday (who knows). Because we always take advantage of the long weekend, a few of us took a trip to Talcá, a town about 3 hours from Santiago. We left on Saturday in the afternoon, and got there about 8PM. The thing is we never reserved a place to stay for the night! The place we wanted to stay was full, so we just asked a taxi driver and he took us to a nice hostel. The next morning, we left for our original destination...a cabin in the mountains. We found out about this place from other friends. Basically, this guy lives in 1 cabin and rents out the other. Its really cool and peaceful. But in order to get there, we had to take a public bus for about 2 hours (imagine going down a country road and stopping when somebody is at the side of the road). So we got there on Sunday afternoon, did a nice 3 hour hike, cooked dinner and relaxed. Monday was more of the same, hiking and relaxing, and then we took the bus back to the city at 5PM that day. After 2 bus rides and a train ride, I was back at my place by 11PM...

Here are some pics....
