Having slept around half an hour, and with blurred memories on how I ended up there, I was travelling north. I decided to go to Chaitén, then to Futaleufú through Villa Santa Lucía. Gerard was driving to Chaitén in order to take a colleague back to La Junta. The colleague was going to Chaitén in a ferry. The ferry, coincidentally, was the ‘Don Baldo’.
We were talking while sunrise, driving north, trying to avoid sleepiness. When we approached Chaitén, we could see the effects of the volcano eruption. Still there were a lot of surface covered with ash, especially in the town. As the ferry arrival was delayed, we had time to stroll around the town.
I found a person going closer to Futaleufú, so I did bid farewell to Gerard. Went to Pt. Ramírez, and then, start hitchhiking again.
