... Colon and walked to the Indian Embassy. Although I was on Swiss time (aka way too early), I didn't have to wait long to receive my passport. With the visa inside! Relieved, I had a juice on a terrace nearby and took the metro and then the bus all the way back to Valparaiso. That evening, after Carolina returned, we had the "once" and later, went to bed.
Today has been relaxed so far and I have no plans for this afternoon, so we will see where the sails bring ...

Mendoza, Valparaiso & Santiago

... shirts all shrink into bellyshirts after 1 wash), restaurants not opening until 8pm, working with different currencies (i.e. trying to figure out if $1100 pesos is a good price for coffee), expensive ****** sunscreen and – most frustratingly - daryn not being a able to use the only two spanish phrases he can say perfectly: ''there is a cat on the table'' and ''the kitchen is green'' - neither of which will get you very far...

Next stop: Auckland!

Searched for drugs

During the 27 hour bus drive (yes, 27 hours on the bus) from Iquique to Valparaiso our bus was searched for drugs by the Chilean drug police and the bus and our baggage was searched for drugs by a dog.

He liked me, I was the only passenger whose hand he licked and where he moved his tail in a playful mode.

    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.
