04/11/2013 Stage 57 Camp Lake Faulkner- Villa la Angostura
This was going to be one of the easiest days with only 60 kms and 800m height gain. The route would once again continue along the seven lakes and was just like yesterday with magnificent views all the way. There was probably less traffic today as the weekend sightseers had all gone home. Nontheless there were still the occasional tourist vans full of people who would pull into the laybys to enjoy the views. We smugly felt that travelling by bike was a much better way of enjoying what was on offer.
Later we met the Canadian cyclist that we had met the night before in the campsite had a chat and let him go ahead as we had breakfast by a different lake. As we approached our destination Marjet spotted a few rags on the road which I had missed and picked them up. 5 kms further on we met the Canadian again who had found two Swiss cyclists and Marjet was able to return the newly discovered rags which were in fact the Canadians leggings. He needless to say was delighted to have them returned.
We've now learned to go to the tourist info centres on arriving in town as they have all the Hosteria addresses , prices, wifi availability etc and found a great value place that otherwise would have been missed. Probably everyone else knows that already but we're slow learners.
