    This Hostal is pretty nice. It´s quite a steep hike to get there or down to the city - about 125 steps. The rooms were clean and they had a space heater there for us (which really came in handy). The walls were a little thin. We could hear people very clearly even though they weren´t being loud. Altogether a nice, cheery stay.

    Next AM (need to think of a more creative way to keep saying that...) we walked into the City to explore further as we felt we hadn't given it enough of our time. We had a coffee, lunch in Bella Vista at a Columbia restaurant and finished up walking to the top of Sainta Lucia park to take in some views. ...

    A day at la playa

    ... only drawback was the LOUDspeaker broadcasting the action from an amateur beach soccer match. I don't think anybody cared about the match as there were only about a dozen people watching, but the loudspeaker could be heard for hundreds of feet in all directions. The other drawback is fear of theft. I was alone so I took minimum supplies. Still I didn't see any suspicious activity and I again wondered if fear of crime is overdone in Chile.

    Got up at 9:13 a.m. aboard Celebrity Infinity in Valparaiso, Chile, the end of my 15-night repositioning cruise from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, via the Panama Canal. At breakfast in my cabin, finished packing, and exited my stateroom at 9:50.

    Went outside on the upper decks to take photographs of Valparaiso on this gorgeous sunny morning. An announcement came over the loudspeakers: "This is the final call for all guests whose cruise is terminating in ...
