We had our yoghurts for breakfast in our room and the walked to the town centre. Did few photos around the lake and the went up the hill to park and viewpoint. Not many people up there, it’s sunny and feels nice. The park works as a mountain bike park too.
Once we reached the top, I checked maps.me where else we can go, as it was still early. I found that about 3km away is a Chester Brewery. That could be a good walk with beer at the end, no? We both agreed and wanted to descend the hill to a footpath near the railway. Unfortunately we took a wrong misleading paths down the hill and reached just bush and very steep downhill we couldn’t pass. Took us a while to get to the park entrance and we needed some water (forgot in the hostel). The nearest shop/coffee is on the same street and water costed 1500 pesos. Then seemed shorter to walk on the road then get back to the footpath. The only issue is that we are not sure if we can get there using the road I can see on the map. The road is marked as private and there is a gate at the end. Just unpaved road and we don’t know what kind of gate it is. Anyway. About 1/2 of the road a very nice and fit lady picked us up to her car and drove us right to the brewery.
The Chester Brewery is small. It’s in kind of fields next to completely unfrequented unpaved road. There is no marked entrance, so we walked behind the building and we got surprised by about 30 people drinking and doing bbg. Not sure if that is a private party or not. We are clearly the different ones. But someone notices us shortly and starts speaking with us in English. We bought two draught beers (each for 2000 clp) and spoke with few people. The owner is American and there is more Americans and people speaking well English.
They told us they have their yearly championship in horseshoe throwing. And asked us to join. If we join we can drink and eat unlimited. But it is 15000 per person. I have only 17. After few minutes, the guy came back and said it is okay 15000 per both of us as they need even number of teams. The teams are with two people each and we are the team number 14.
We played, but didn’t get to quarterfinals. We had never played that before. But we got decently tipsy and had nice meets and great chat.
Before the sunset, we walked back on the correct footpath and the bought some food in supermarket and I cooked still a bit drunk.
