    That's me!

    The Seven Lakes Road, that leads you from San Martín de los Andes to San Carlos de Bariloche, runs among several lakes (seven?); one of them is Lago Correntoso. The picture does not show a mapuche woman by the lake; that is just me!

    La ruta de los Siete Lagos, que une San Martín de los Andes con San Carlos de Bariloche, corre entre varios lagos (¿siete?); uno de ellos es el Lago Correntoso. La foto no muestra a una mujer mapuche junto al lago; ¡esa soy yo!

    Quintu-purai

    Quintu-purai, that means "eight brothers" (I do not know why I explain this... everybody here speaks mapuche!) is a beautiful and quiet place at the lakeside of Lago Correntoso; some mapuches live here. The drizzly morning I visited this place, I ate there a couple of delicious "tortas fritas" (fried cakes). This place is another possible stop along the Seven Lakes Road.

    Quintu-purai, que significa "ocho hermanos" (no sé por qué explico esto... ¡todo el mundo aquí habla mapuche!) es un bello y tranquilo paraje a orillas del Lago Correntoso; algunos mapuches viven aquí. La lluviosa mañana que visité este lugar, comí un par de deliciosas tortas fritas. Este lugar es otra parada posible de la Ruta de los Siete Lagos.

    Vulinan-co

    Vulinan-co (as we all know!!!) means "divided water" in mapuche; this is the name of a beautiful waterfall hidden behind a leafy vegetation, situated by one of the roads that connect San Martín de los Andes (Provincia del Neuquén) with San Carlos de Bariloche (Provinica de Río Negro); this road that wanders through an awesome landscape is called Seven Lakes Road.

    Vulinan-co (como todos sabemos!!!) significa "agua dividida" en mapuche; es el nombre de una hermosa cascada escondida detrás de una frondosa vegetación, situada en una de las rutas que conectan San Martín de los Andes (Provincia del Neuquén) con San Carlos de Bariloche (Provincia de Río Negro); este camino serpentea a través de un imponente paisaje es llamado el Camino de los Siete Lagos.
