Mapuche Children

Most important to all of us were the children - this was a special day for us all.

This is Lily, fitting to have this picture with the lily's in front of her. What an angel!

The Rebel is Loose!

Here is a good one!

Several of us Canadian delegates had had our portraits drawn by Chilean artists who
worked on the sidewalks of the cities. I will be asking for Kelly's and maybe... just maybe
I will add my portrait! hahaha

One of the towns we visited was called Vina Del Mar which is a beautiful ocean front
community. Along the beach there were several artists that would draw your portrait
for 500 pesos (a couple canadian dollars).

The day was clear and I could see for a long ways out in the ocean and thats where
I was looking while the man sketched this portrait.
