Arrived in Valdivia this morning after a night bus. Valdivia is a city that many Germans used to live in in the past, and still known for it`s beer and German names for some of the streets.
The city looks nice and so does our new kayaks!!
First meeting with the “curent designs” Sirocco boats.
There is some work to be done in order to get it ready.
The solar pannels must be secured to the back deck and so does the battery cases.
In the picture you can see On and Shatz testing the new toy with Jorje and Edward that gave us a hand with the preperations.
The third kayak is about to arrive tomorow.
There is a bit un certenty about the permits we are waiting for, but we have decided that once we will finish getting the gear ready, if we still have to wait we will do it while doing some white water kayaking in the town of Pucon which is 3 hours drive from here.
So it feels like we are getting closer to the water, hopefully sooner then later.
Bye for now,
On Shatz and me.
