I had been reading Chilean history for a couple years and knew that I wanted to visit. It didn’t seem like I needed to spend a whole week in Santiago, so I went to the Lakes District first. I used Puerto Montt as a base from which to explore other towns in the region. Puerto Montt turned out to be just that….a base to explore from. As I began walking along the lake to my hotel, I spotted a bunch of death metal fans. One was wearing a DEICIDE shirt. I tried to talk to him, but neither him nor his friends spoke English & my Spanish is not good enough (that’s a VAN HAGAR song) for deep conversation. I don’t know any DEICIDE songs, but I know what they sound like, so I started singing what I thought a typical DEICIDE song sounded like. Well, the young man in the shirt started headbanging and singing along. I wish I had that on video!
