      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.

It was settled by British, French, Italians and Germans so there`s a real mix of cultures and architecture. The hills are covered in brightly painted houses ...

      From the restaurant we decided to check out the presidential palace and the beach so grabbed a taxi there. Turned out to be quite a long way, later discovering that we'd actually gone to the neighbouring town/city called vine del mar. We'd picked to visit the palace from a map as there was a cartoon picture of it on there so assumed there'd be something to see. Not so much. It happens that I think the palace might just be a house and you can't really visit it. So we carried on down to ...
