      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.

      Not many hours of sleep, but I managed to get up in time. Got up from bed 15 minutes before 7. The breakfast was already on the table, so we had time to eat before we left. Just two slices of bred with butter and jam, two cookies and a cup of coffee. I probably couldn't have eaten more anyway. We didn't really know how to get to Valparaíso, neither me nor Ellen. But we knew we had to be there before 10.00am if we wanted to do the free walking tour that ...

They’re here for Antarctica and I can’t really compete with mother nature and her whales, so I’ve just been cruising through it, ready for the next 4 cruises, followed by the long reposition up to Boston which takes me to May and the end of my longest stint at sea.
