Good location in between the city centre and bus station. Very clean. Really comfortable, modern, en-suite double room. Good breakfast. Pleasant patio common area. Given your own key for the front door...generally felt very secure.

We bounced back and forth between the original asteroid we started on two nights ago, 18137, and a new asteroid 1870. We were able to work all night and got a bunch of data to analyze ...
Hola familia y amigos!
We are day 10 into our year long adventure. There have been many firsts this past week, including our first earthquake. It was magnitude 4.8 with an epicenter just 20km SE of Coquimbo (a neighbouring port city 10km south of La Serena). It was around 6am, I only had time to sit up in bed and then it was over. Luckily, Frank was just about to step out the door on his way to work and was able to console me as I was indeed ...
