week 2 in chile: gol gol, nilahue & fuy

After returning from the cochamo, we left again for points south, this time heading to argentina, where the middle aged mulletted asshole customs man would not let us enter the country with our kayaks because he claimed we would sell them. Denied, we drove back through the taint, re-entering chile and putting on the gol gol.

then the burl, salto indio, which sent us all deep and popped a few skirts. my skirt stayed on but the boat was bent a bit when i resurfaced. fred took this photo as well.

Then we drove the dusty road to Nilahue Falls, which was pretty high flowing, so only a few stepped up to the plate. Here is Rodrigo dropping in the maw

we then drove some more dusty roads to the rio Fuy, which is another Chilean river slated to be dewatered by a hydro project
