... great pride in it as there was so much cleaning going off, this Involved a small boat going round with filters which cleaned the water, it was mesmerising to watch as god knows how long it would take to do the entire thing. After taking several photos, acting like chinese tourists, we to our first dip in the biggest swimming pool in the world, it felt unbelievable.we then took a walk around the entire pool which also had an infinity effect looking ...

... last few days and as she sometimes does these tours a couple of times a day she enjoys seeing new ones. Lucy is also an Isabel Allende fan and she showed us the church which figures in "Daughter of Fortune" as the one where Eliza Sommers was found abandoned as a baby. The streets around the church, close to our hotel, are those that Isabel Allende used in her research for the book. Although it's fictitious, I can't ...

... above his head, no doubt giving a hearty roar as he did so. However, it seems his men had second thoughts, and poor Arturo was the only man who boarded the flagship, the rest of him men jumped overboard and swam away from the fight! Arturo was unceremoniously shot in the head, and the battle was lost. However, for some reason, this galvanised the Chilean populace into fighting harder and winning the war. They chose to ...

This last week was pretty lame. I'm getting in the habit of going to classes, my schedule is pretty easy. And then i got this awesome sickness that started wed night and has had me down for the count for the rest of the week. Started as a sore throat and turned into one of the worst head colds I think I've ever had. My head feels like it weighs a million pounds and my ears are killing me. Because of it I havent been sleeping well. On friday I was determined to go ...

Smoking Santiago at 7am

... through the station and they led me to the metro. I payed about 1 euro for a ticket and got out at the Catholic University, where I had chosen a hostel. The girl who worked there (from Germany) was so kind to let me in a room right away, so I went to bed until 11. The rest of the afternoon I went walking around Santiago. A lot of things are within walking distance and I actually managed to see a lot of things without taking any kind of transportation. I walked along one of the main ...

    We read loads of great reviews of this place before booking and think it was a little over egged. It's not the best hostel in SA and neither is it the best breakfast either. Maybe we were expecting more due to the great reviews.

    As soon as you go through the front door you are straight onto a steep set of stairs which take you into a living room. Off this room are bedrooms, a kitchen and bathroom. Another set of narrow stairs take you down to another floor - toilet, bathroom, more rooms, a seating area and kitchen.

    We had to cancel our first night because of buses and we phoned and emailed Patricio - however when we arrived there was some confusion and we weren't sure at first if he was going to try and charge us. he didn't. We arrived at 9am and if we had taken a room at that time he said he would charge us. But then decided we go into the room after all.

    The first room we were given had no windows to the outside - only high up windows into the corridor - these windows did not have a curtain across them, so if the light disturbs you, this isn't the room for you. The room was large with a decent sized bed, but there was a damp smell.

    We asked to change room as we wanted a window. This one wasn't ready so we waited a short while. It was a smaller room but had 2 windows. The bed was smaller, the mattress was very thin - so thin that when you sat in bed you could feel the slats of the bed through it.

    The shared bathroom was always clean and the shower was hot and strong.

    The kitchen on the lower floor was not as well equipped as the one on the first floor - we had to go up for a shape knife, pan big enough for pasta and a decent sized frying pan. There was no hot water in this kitchen, so to wash up we boiled the kettle. The teatowel was always wet so it was difficult to dry your dishes.

    The breakfast was available between 9am and 10am and it consisted of warm bread, meat, cheese, sometimes avocado and jam with tea and coffee. OK, but nothing out of the ordinary. If you got there near 10am you generally only had the pick of the biscuit style bread.
