Patagonian Don Quixotes

In Zapala we have encountered around the corner an unexpected inhabitant of the Patagonian steppe.

We are sure that these lands would be an ideal arena for quixotic adventures (as in fact they have been more than once) as well as for lengthy talks with faithful and wise squires.

Restaurant “Don Quijote” in Zapala. The next time we go there we will sit at its tables.

Some days later, on the other side of the chains of the Andes, a Chilean Don Quixote awaited us. Close cousin, perhaps, of that of Regazzoni wandering over the pampas of Argentina, although with less freedom: it was framed in Pucón, between the lake and the volcano Villarica, doomed to go the way his obsession had marked for him.
