This is the small town of Carahue in Southern Chile, where I would stay while waiting on my Finnish University applications.

Puerto Saavedra

Panoramic shot I took of Puerto Saavedra. The sea is never far in Chile.

piñones or pine nuts. These come from the Araucaria which is considered to be a “living fossil.” A prehistoric tree that lives to this day. Due to its adaptability to cold climate and its abundant fruit there have been suggestions to grow it in Nordic climates.


Outdoor cat. This cat would hang around my neck while I would browse the web from the rooftops (only way to get a good signal).


Nice view of Santiago while I prepare to head back to Finland
