    Lovely owners but tired looking hostel

    We ended up staying here because the hostel we'd wanted to stay at was booked up and this one was on the same street. The family that run this hostel are lovely, so friendly and because it has family run it has a really homely feel to it. The rooms, communal areas and bathrooms were very clean but the kitchen often felt grubby. The decor looked as though it could do with a bit of a spruce up. Our room did have a TV which was a nice touch. Gardens were lovely and full of flowers! There's not much nearby except the bus station which is really close. Its about a 15 min walk to the supermarket, 15 min walk to the town centre and 25 min walk to the beach.

    From Iquique to La Serena we had the longest bus journey yet, 20 hours! We thought that as the journey was so long, we'd try get the 180 degree reclining seats but after some research scrapped that idea as it would've cost £100! We got the regular semi cama seats instead and left at 8pm. After a film and a sleeping pill, we managed to sleep …

    ... the food so we headed for the Japanese Garden. It cost 1,000 pesos each to get in but it was worth the money. The garden had been designed and built by Japanese people from Tokyo so it was very authentic and well maintained.

    Across the road from the Japanese Garden was Parque Pedro de Valdivia with a small 'zoo'. There were cages with a desert fox, guanacos, sheep, giant tortoise, emu, ostrich and sadly condors too. The cages were way too small for ...

    ... wrapped around the electrical lines. Most normal people would immediately let go of the line and agree that the kite was lost forever, but not Chileans. The little boy proceeded to tug (excessively) at the kite, slowly moving towards the line. His father then stepped in, but not to deter the little boy, but to continue tugging and attempt to untangle the kite from the electrical line. Eventually, it came free, and fortunately no one was ...

    Elqui - Pisco and Vino

    ... which makes them a super food somewhat like Blueberries. Maqui has 3 times the levels that blueberries have! This drink tasted like redbull and looked like very dark Ribena but was even sweeter than the Mango! We strangely did not get to taste the straight Pisco but having already gone on about Kappa, I didn’t think it would be as good so no great loss.

    After this we had our first realisation that this extension ...

    ... the view by the lighthouse. After a ~2 hour walk down in the burning heat, we caught a bus back to La Serena and got off at the supermarket. Rach bought a hotdog while I bought some pollo viennas and bread rolls to make hotdogs with when we got back to the hostal. When we got back, Rach and Ash picked up their nice smelling clothes from the laundry. Not gonna lie - I was pretty jealous. As we cooked dinner the lady found ways to watch us as we cooked! Super awks but ok. We then ...
