      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.

      ... in the sunshine. The surf was big and the current was strong, so Sean struggled a little having not surfed for a while, but it was fun to be out there. We enjoyed a big asado (BBQ) back at the hostel, drinking and reading in the sunshine for the afternoon. Later on we enjoyed a walk along the beach for sunset. We watched the film Argo in the evening, enjoying a few Piscolas, a popular Chilean drink of Pisco and Coke. Nico made some homemade pizza for us later ...

      ... Chilean treat. True to form, the next day involved being pretty hungover and feeling sorry for myself. The German Trio and I checked out the local free tour, which was really good fun (led by people dressed as 'where's Wally' - as you do...). Afterwards we cooked again at the hostel before The German Trio sadly left to go to Mendoza. Hopefully I will see them again in Buenos Aires, but if not I plan to visit them for student carnival in Leipzig next ...

      After Peru, we took a 20-day cruise to Antarctica! Before our cruise, we stayed in Santiago, Chile for just a couple days. Then we left on January 10th for the cruise. This time traveling, we all had normal suitcases (instead of backpacks). They are a lot easier to roll around. Our backpacks were really heavy. I was super excited to get on the cruise. I had never met anyone else who had gone to Antarctica before. I thought there would be some people my age, but as we were getting on ...
