The Dog and the Pig
We came across these two rapscallions playing together in the street. The dog would chase the piglet in a circle. Then they switched and the piglet chased the dog. The piglet also jumped up and pecked the dog on the face. I cannot express how heart-warming this vision was on what was otherwise a relatively dull day.
Ms Feachem and I are now working up a Disney-style movie script featuring these two (Hugo and Evo), a guinea pig, an armadillo, an alpaca and an escape on the back of a condor. The baddie will be an Augusto Pinochet lookalikey farmer who wants to turn Evo into chorizo.
Other ideas for characters and plotlines welcome.
This was the back-drop for Hugo and Evo´s games. Cochamo, a fishing village which the Rough Guide to Chile describes as beautiful, on a fjord known as Estaurio Reloncavi. You can see Volcan Yates at the far end, under cloud.
