        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.

Down to the metro and get the train to vina del mar. This is a really touristy area, lots of sandy beaches and high rise apartments, stroll around for an hour or so before getting a beer and some average empanadas. We want to visit the vast sand dunes which we think may be in a place called ...

On Sunday Willie and Magda had organised a lunch party with Nicholas and Loreto and another couple Helen and Bonzo. We headed into olmue straight after breakfast to pick up some final things and to buy my bus ticket for Tuesday to santiago. Magda (with some help) had prepared a huge buffet of food for us all, ...

        ... at one point we turned a corner and we were worried that we could be on someone's property without realising it! So we took a few photos and swiftly nipped back down the slope! That was pretty much all we did today. The weather was lovely and our hostel is such a beautiful place. It reminds of Sunday lunches at my nannys house from years ago, it had that same feel ...
