I'm finally out of the city and into the region of the Carretera Austral, Chile's southern "highway". I've waited for years to see this road, which is broken in several places by fiords that must be crossed in ferries. The farther south I go, the more people I meet who have strong, informed opinions on the HidroAysen project
. I'm learning more about what - and who - is at stake.
