We needed to get back to the mainland so we had to wait for the ferry until 4 pm. They load it like a jig saw puzzle and we ended up sealed in.

The nice thing about the delivery guys is they off sell their wares so there are lots of snacks for the 2-hour ride.

This huge diesel delivery truck got stuck half way up the ramp to the ferry, as there was no traction. They needed to rig up a ramp system with pieces of wood in order to get him on.

This boat travels so slowly there is not even a wake. The US coastguard was in town too.

We were really dreading the hotel that we stayed at in town near the ferry, but luckily there is another somewhat better option (the preferred hotel) at the other side of town and there is a not bad Comida China there too. The ride back to Santiago over the mountains was amazing this time in the sunshine. We always meet the most interesting people at the gas station.
