So what do you do after a South American triathlon?


BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE END OF THIS BLOG FOR SOME HOT VOLCANIC ACTION.

Step 1: Eat a man-sized Chilean hamburger at Rap's in Pucon, Chile. Order the Italiana, which turns out to be nothing whatsoever resembling an Italian sandwich, but instead instead the entire butt of a cow served up on a huge bun, with some kind of spicy avocado sauce. BEST SERVED WITH A PISCO SOUR, OR TWO.

Step 2: Eat home-made gelato at Cassis on Fresia St. in Pucon. Also, eat a huge slice of their caramel cake (not pictured).


Step 3: Go to thermal springs. Es muy caliente...


...feed baby (note glass of wine, no self-neglect here)...


...get babies to fall asleep...


...snuggle with wife in hot springs (note sleeping babies in background)...



Step 4: Climb an active volcano via a 5 hour ascent at 4am, before flight leaves for Spokane. Check out these sweet videos:





Well, folks, so that's a wrap of the Pucon, Chile trip! Next stop: New Orleans Half-Ironman Triathlon in April. Until then, check back occasionally for training snippets and triathlon related updates. Or maybe even family pictures!
