Bariloche and across to Chile

7 Lakes Route (San Martin to Bariloche)
7 Lakes Route (San Martin to Bariloche)

Just arrived at Puerto Vales in Chile after a frozen crossing of the Chilean border.
Since our last entry we´ve done the 7 lakes tour, a scenic and mountainous tour of alpine lakes and snow capped peaks.
We´ve checked out Bariloche, a heavily developed lakeside town that supports skiing and other outdoor activities.
Then our crossing to Chile coincided with a nasty spell of weather with continuous rain then snow resulting in a freezing experience where we had to seek shelter in a shed and camp so we could thaw out.
Now settled for a couple of days in a hostel on Puerto Vales in Chile, a wonderful old house from the 1930s.
