      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.

      ... church which was build between 1585 and 1627. The special thing about that church is that it's build from german stones. And of course it was the only building in La Serena that survived a big fire started by pirates in 1680.

      The dinner wasn't very special, except the dessert. It was something chilean, looked like rice to me and I didn't like it.

      Not only is the Elqui Valley famous for the pisco which it churns out but it is also a known attraction for star gazing. So much so that the road through the valley is known as the Ruta de las Estrellas (the star route), due to the limited light pollution and commonly clear skies of the area. One can choose from a variety of observatories, ...

      I'd do anything for a bed right now. My eyes keep closing but I'm less comfortable than a Ugandan at a village people concert so I just can't sleep. I feel ill. The bus driver has smoked so many fags that there are none left in the whole of Indonesia and he's resorted to smoking nondescript flakes found in his underpants. The vile beast behind ...

      ... neither but got chis a nice shirt and bought me a sarong! Woohoo! We meandered around for a few hours enjoying the scenery and architecture and then bought food from the supermarket for the bus journey. As a late lunch we went to a fast food place near our hostel and had half a chicken & chips. The chicken was cooked on a spit roast and the chips were cooked with juices from the chicken. A-MA-ZING! Later we collected our ...

One of the smallest in the world apparently. So when the guide said, look at the group up on the hill, it sure did take a good while to find them, and the zoom on my camera was sadly not really up to the challenge. Shin high little blighters, but wonderful ...
