Valdivia - Our Cabaña
Photos by Don and Lois Porter
1/15/2006 -- updated 3/20/2006

Cabañas are the most common lodging in Valdivia for tourists. Typically a family visits here for a vacation, and rents a cabaña for a few days or a week. So we had some negotiating to do to be able to rent by the month. Fortunately, our hosts Raul and Lucy are very flexible. We are very comfortable in our little cabaña, located 6 blocks from the central plaza in Valdivia. Lois enjoys Lucy’s kittens, visible next door from our upstairs bedroom window – here are some of Lois’s photos of them. But most of all Lois enjoys “Bruja” ("witch"), a neighbor’s dog. Bruja adopted Lois early on, since she (Bruja) is a glutton for attention. You can tell from Lois’s smile that they are best friends. The other photos, taken by Lois, show Don enjoying all the comforts of home in our pleasant cabaña.
