From Arequipa we drove by bus to Tacna where we crossed the boarder into Arica. For this, we got a collectivo (a shared taxi) with an English girl, an Aussie girl and a Peruvian lad. The boarder crossing between Peru and Chile was much more official than it had been going to or leaving Bolivia. There were sniffer dogs, machines to put your bags …

We've come back to Chile for the last time to visit Arica.
Arica is a nice little surf city in the extreme north of Chile, 18km south of the border with Peru.
Arica is one of the driest inhabited places on Earth, getting only 0.76mm of rain per year on average.

The first day we spent walking around the city, and walking up the 140 …

We arrived in Santiago unbelievably jet lagged, we got to the hostel and fell asleep almost immediately at about 1pm and slept until early the next morning. The next day we spent feeling tired and very homesick, after the comfort of New Zealand and Sydney South America feels very alien, and the language barrier doesn't help at all. Our hostel was …

    We loved this hostel!- the staff are lovely and so helpful. We wanted a dorm but there was no space so we were given a private for the same price as a dorm! The beds are comfy and our room even had a TV with satellite. There's a decent kitchen for guests to use and an open communal space. The best thing about this hostel though is the fantastic complimentary breakfast... Choice of scrambled egg or cereal with yogurt, toast, a cake, juice and an amazing coffee! Just perfect compared to the usual stale bread!
