The "Sea of Pain" 'cause usually it is a brutal passage. We have perfect weather that left some veteran voyagers marvelling: "I've never seen that before!". The "English Narrows" is the narrowest we see. We stop to trade cargo at Villa Puerto Eden.
We travel by boat to see the Bernardo O'Higgins National Park including a walk to the foot of the Balmaceda glacier. After a lovely lunch, we boat back to Puerto Natales to board vans for the long drive to Punta Arenas.
A long haul to Santiago on absolutely fabulous public bus service. It is more like a jetliner with reclining seats, video screens and snacks served. The restops are equally excellent. And, there is competition so the price is low. Great value!
Wiki says: There are 16 extant historical elevators (Spanish: ascensores) in the city of Valparaíso. We set out walking to ride as many as we could in an afternoon. www.welcomechile.com/valparaiso/valparaiso-funiculars.html The cover for this video is taken from the porch of the Museum of Pablo Neruda.
We get to La Serena in good time via the bus system. In La Serena we find a festival of some kind going on. We end the evening at a local planetarium associated with the nearby Cerro Tololo observatory.
