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 …

... and figured it probably wasn't open yet, anyway (since nothing else was). Dennis had booked this two-day tour back in May, given the company our passport information and received two confirmation emails. He emailed them again three days before we arrived in Arica, to clarify pick-up time and a couple of other logistical details, but he hadn't heard back yet. This seemed slightly concerning, but I wasn't worried since we had the confirmation emails, and ...

... We were soon settling in and snoozing off the previous night’s discomforts.

The next morning we were up bright and early: the 10am cut-off for breakfast was a good way of making sure we didn’t let the jet-lag (be it from time zone changes or bus journeys!) have its wicked way any more than necessary! Peter then spent the day researching our next move: as yet we were not sure whether to head north into Peru or to go straight to Bolivia. In the meantime, ...

... the Lluta valley we were able to observe agriculture in the desert. The principal crops are tomatoes, olives, corn, mangoes, etc. Water is obtained from ground wells fed by seasonal flow from Andean rivers; plants are irrigated by drip hoses.

Three notable shipboard events today. About half an hour after leaving port, we returned to port for a medical emergency. It's comforting to know that if a medical event cannot be handled on board that every ...

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 ...

    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!
