Stuck in Chaiten, near torrential rains, little money, local bank which is a lone ATM in an otherwise empty building refuses to accept my debit cards or Visas. Appears this section of Chile, the small town ATM’s only accept Master Card. So with 25000 pesos for fuel, food and lodging over the next 400 k to a larger town, I must eat little and sleep in the jungle.
Looks like New Years will be quiet, the owner of the hostel has been turning away any new guests and with the exception of a couple Swiss, Steve, the English cyclist, myself and Antonio all the others left.
Happy New Year
