Putre and Parinacota “sponsors” of Vancouver Olympic Games.

“Terrace Lodge is very nice and comfortable, but small.  Where do I put the rest of the staff ?” Ingrid Bragemann, manager at Tantor Films, was in putre last November  in order to shoot a promo video for Bombardier, the sponsor of the Olympic Games 2010 in Canada.  The result is here.   Enjoy!

Save the Andean Cat.

A small contribution comes from Terrace Lodge. Since December 2009 we have decided to give a little help.  How?

  • Giving the tips received from our guests to The Andean Cat Alliance.
  • Asking our guests to refill their bottles of purified water instead of buying bottled mineral water.  Doing this way, the profit from the sales goes to the association, we limit the production of plastic bottles (which can not be recycled locally) and the guests save a little money.

Since Dec.2009 we collected CLP 29.200; in February 2010  CLP 21,900;  in March CLP 12,000 (of which 10,000 from a Belgian guest, Mr Verstraeten). Low season in May and June brought only CLP 3.000.  Better in July, CLP 12.000, of which CLP 10.000 from a generous Swiss guest: Cecilia Porchia.  Thanks Cecilia!  In August CLP 4,000.  In August: CLP 4,000.   In September: CLP 15,000 most of which donated by Sylvie and José, a couple from Quebec, Canada.
