-Peace and good at the church of san francisco
| || |
We are in Castro, Chile, the third oldest city in Chile and part of the Chiloe Archipelago. We travelled from the ship via a tender to town and walked through the busy little city.
We were enchanted by the brightly covered houses which stood on stilts and the colorful office buildings. In the center of town, we we stumbled upon a lovely little church called The Church of San Francisco. It was built in 1906 and made entirely of wood. Both of us enjoyed the warm and gentle vibe inside the church.
As we left, I noticed a wonderful little sign outside by the exit. It said, Paz y Bien, which translated in English means "peace and good."
I wish all churches took that motto to heart and let that be their guide rather than the judgment/sin stuff. Life is too short. Agree or don't agree but that's how I feel.
As we leave Castro, we sail through the Gulf of Corcovado. I remember the song by the same name sung by the lovely Tracy Thorn with Everything But The Girl. Enjoy.
We are at sea for a couple of days before our next stop during which, if the internet is still on, I will post more photos to the galleries.
Michael and I travel mostly because we like learning and experiencing new things, seeing new places and learning about different cultures and food that only comes from getting out and about in the world.
