A few comments... 1. The area is called Aisen (Aysen, an acceptable variant), not Aiken. 2. Macho, in Spanish, means male, so The guide was referring to the male Arrayan. 3. Is it customary to literally transcribe the English words of a non- native English speaker? The guide's English sounded pretty good to me, so what was the point of reporting every small grammatical error, such as "Mostly it rain here" or "No too many animals"? How would the writer's efforts at Spanish compare?
