Heavenly Crush

I have already described how to travel across the Pacific so I won’t repeat myself. I leave these troubles to myself as it’s hard to speak of them again. After Hawaii I head west. It took months until I saw the coast of Mexico. I decided to get closer to solid ground and sail on my raft along the coast until I reach Chile and my third destination – the Andes. That is a longer voyage but it is safer than sailing the ocean.
I arrived on a beautiful and deserted coast of Southern California. It’s much easier to sail now, in case of bad weather I don’t have to stand gusts of wind and waves, but only to anchor and wait for the sea to calm down again. Again I slowly go down along the coast of Mexico. I make a stop at Zihuatanejo, a town on the Pacific coast and former important Aztec city. I’m looking for remains of pre-Columbian America, but they tell me that I have to go deeper into the mainland if I want to explore this long-lost civilization. Unfortunately, this would move me away from my target in this part of the trip. Because of this, I unwillingly pack all the necessary food and equipment and head the raft south. I decided not to plan any ambitious research on my way to Chile. I only enjoy the sites of Central American and then South American coasts.

Chile Andes mountains

While sailing along the Mexican coast a pod of whales pass by. They migrate north. Ican identify with these wonderful animals. Constantly on the road, constantly on the move. Like me, whales reveal the secrets of this planet. They communicate with each other as well; it’s a pity that we can’t understand them. They would definitely have a lot to tell us.
I pass by the coast of Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama (I pause only to watch the huge ships sailing in and out the famous canal). Later I reach the coast of Columbia, Ecuador and Peru. I sail into the waters of Chile. Already when you see it on the map it’s an unusual country. It’s elongated, and from the end point at the north to the south there is 4.630 kilometers, and maximum width is only 430 kilometers. I descend to the region of Los Lagos, which isn’t difficult. But the bigger problem is to find what I’m looking for. I want to see from close up the volcano Osorno to whom it is difficult to access. I sail among thousands of islands. The coastline is incredibly jagged. I squeeze through with my raft, enter the fjords, fantastic mountains surround me. Indescribable. I sail into the wild Petroe River, but I can’t go far with my raft. Walking awaits me. Firstly, I fight with the wild in order to reach Lake Todos los Santos. All the time my mind is set on our goal – the Osorno volcano, whose white cap is seen in the distance, such as at children’s drawings.I start for my quest for the Red Crater. Climbing is not my favorite activity, but I invest effort to see what my fellow explorers were talking about. I walk on the dark volcano soil, when suddenly a huge red hole appears in front of me. In the midst of darkness a red crater looks at me, it seems like it will swallow me, yet peaceful, experts convince me.

I sit on the edge of the Red Crater. It is not all the same to me. When I got used to the giant, I decided to take a refreshment from my backpack. The red Tiki – Heavenly Crush. A heavenly landscape for a celestial beverage. An ideal refreshment on the edge of a red volcano. This Tiki contains an incredible combination of flavors. There is mango, orange, red orange, strawberries, pineapple and raspberries. Such range of flavors lifted me a couple of meters. The fear is gone. Now I completely enjoy and think about the color of red.
If my memory serves me right, which is questionable due to nearby volcanic fumes that are known to affect the mind, red is the color of royalty, kings and princes, the color of flame and power. It symbolizes energy, danger, power, determination, passion, desire and love. A powerful mix as well as in the red Tiki. Red is the most common color on national flags and the flag of Chile has red too. In the language of the people Mapuche, natives in this area, I finally connected with the pre-Columbian culture. The word for red is kelü, reads “kele”.

I don’t stay too long in this location, a long voyage awaits me, and I do not stop to think about the Osorno Volcano as one of the most active in the Andes. I do not want to attend the eruption from such proximity. Perhaps I could want to see the lava from my raft, as Charles Darwin witnessed Osorno infuriate in 1835. He was on a ship called the Beagle. I’m coming back down the mountain and looking for the place where I anchored my raft. A voyage around South America and new destinations awaits me… I will be there. How about you?
