Sunday in the Park with Claudia

 

 

Sunday afternoon in Copiapo's plaza, a large gathering of motorcycles for a rally.

Competition (who can go the slowest along a track), companionship (numerous clubs)

 

 

 

 

So catching a little of the local color, I ask to photograph some of the Ruteros

 

 

 

 

 

Then they ask to photograph me

 

 

 

 

 

Then they induct me

 

 

 

 

 

Always on the lookout for new talent, I ask a young woman if I can photograph her

 

Meet Claudia

 

 

 

 

 

Whereupon she asks if I'd like a ride on this trike.

Of course I respectfully decline

Like hell!

 

 

 

 

So under the gaze of an impressive bunch of spectators, we're off

 

 

 

 

 

And for the next 10 minutes we tour Copiapo in style

 

 

Arriving back at the plaza, Claudia's father, Josť, invited me to join his family for an authentic Chilean lunch

Again, I'm gonna say no?  Not hardly

Josť, wife Palusa, Claudia, father Josť, mother Olga, Marie Olga, Camilla

Had a lovely lunch, swam in the pool, actually conversed in Spanish

Authentic Chilean hospitality

Wonderful family
