So, we made our first journey in our (new) car (not sure it is totally legal yet). Other than driving thru a toll without taking a ticket (fined .75 cents with a good gringo accent). We went to Punta de Parra today up the coast from Concepcion. Lot of re-building after the tsunami, but a very enjoyable day. Next outing to a Laguna off Bio Bio river, then heading to work on Friday. End of "summer" vacation!!
