Franco has been coughing and spluttering since December. Two courses of antibiotics made no difference so it was time to see a specialist. 

Diagnosis: Franco is allergic to Chile! 

It seems to have something to do with the vast amount of green wood that is burnt for heating and cooking. A little unfortunate since we are planning on  staying in Valdivia until December.

It may be curable, with a turbo inhaler (which is as expensive as it sounds) but meanwhile we are off to Mendoza to absorb some sunshine and imbibe lots of good wine.
