Helsingfors

Tuesday afternoon after lunch we went trekking with our guide Martiniano to Estancia Los Hermanos (The Brothers Ranch), which is the nearby Ranch owned by the same owner of Helsingfors. We trekked 10K (6.2 miles) up and down hills and then received a thorough and enlightening tour of the old sheep sheering operation (see video below), as well as the garden and greenhouse.

We were exhausted when we got back to Helsingfors, and had just enough time for our shower and then to dinner. We met a nice young couple from Seattle: Molly and Aaron, and then an Italian couple also arrived, Claudio and Mariniella. They are hilarious! Claudio goes on and on talking in Italian, knowing none of us understands him, and then looks at his wife expecting her to translate his entire conversation! “She is my mouth” he would say.

I will post separately on our Trek today….eye yai yai…..
