7/22-  Los Andes
For our day off we went to the Andes Mountains in de maipo to visit the glacier (a glacier) and we hiked up to see it.  Brilliant really- we rented a van and then hitchhiked the rest of the way up where the van couldn’t go.  It was amazing and the snow was lovely and we saw a rainbow at the largest waterfall.  7 people stuffed into the back of a pickup truck with open views of the glacier and mountain peeks was probably the highlight of the trip thus far. I often wondered if the political climate affected the residents in the mountains since they seemed so far removed from the issues of neo-liberalism and politics.  Do they still deem it necessary to be active members of various political parties and vote?
