Roberto, the owner, makes this hostel. We arrived very late on a Sunday night, and were immediately welcomed with a can of beer. A nice touch. Relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, great breakfast available all morning and generally clean. We had an en-suite room with cable TV, which was good, apart from the lock was broken so we had to just use a locker, but it felt quite safe anyway. The hostel is located 3km out of town but it was really easy to take a collectivo to and from city centre. Thank you, Roberto, for a great stay!

We arrived in Arica, northern Chile, after our mammoth journey from Sucre (28 hours in total!)

Arica, an urban beach resort, is a border town flush against Peru and close to Bolivia. The knobby headland of El Morro looms over the long swaths of sand, with El Cristo looking out towards Peru, symbolising peace between the two countries. The …

... morning was too gray for any kind of decent views, though. Chileans call Arica "the city of eternal spring," but springtime often entails overcast mornings. We descended again to the city's cathedral, designed by Gustave Eiffel before he built the Eiffel Tower. Here, we finally found a handful of other people, also admiring the church's steel exterior and interior. The cathedral was really cool, and a highlight of Arica.

We wandered around the ...

... we didn’t get off to a great start with our conductor either: as soon as the bus set off he came to check our tickets and at the same time, asked us to hand over our passports.

"Hang on a second, we didn’t have to do this on our journey from Santiago! Why now?"

Unfortunately, his reply was as unintelligible to us as our question probably had been to him: he did not speak any English. It soon became clear, however, that he was not going to move ...

My recovery from food poisoning was nothing short of astonishing. While my appetite evaded me still, physically I was rested and ready for the unknown. I was about to make things up as I went along trying to get to Arica ... this was a big thing for this risk-averse lawyer ...

My journey began with a short taxi ride to the airport and the useless and bitter support staff of Peruvian Airlines. While there was heaps of activity amongst the LAN gates, at our ...

... needs because it was much cheaper than Chile and the quality was just as good. Ah ha, mystery solved!

After working in Tacna for a week, I took a long weekend to jump down to Chile - a country whose seemingly never-ending stretch of beach has always beckoned me from afar. But before I get ahead of myself, allow me to reflect on the border crossing. Like most of you, I'm used to crossing international borders within the confines of ...
