      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.

      ... like the one we took to Lima. For dinner we headed to the supermarket for ingredients. The store was laid out almost exactly like a Vons- which made me irrationally excited considering I don't even shop at Vons at home. Back at the hostel I made spaghetti with red sauce and a tomato and blue cheese salad. Again-so nice to eat food like I eat at home and ESPECIALLY nice to be able to prepare it myself. This hostel was also nice because it had comparatively ...

      The next day, we went to Elqui Valley, which is known for its quaint towns and more importantly, its pisco distilleries. Elqui Valley lies about 2 and a half hours inland (an ohour or so beyond the observatories). As our bus brought us farther from the beach ...

      We were in La Serena for two full days and both were spent walking through the central market and hanging out on the beach. On Sunday we rode a one hour bus to Vicuņa, a town famous for the best stargazing in the region. While there, we went to an unusual restaurant where ...

      It's crazy to think that we're leaving tomorrow! I feel like I just got here! Though I am ready to come home, don't get me wrong, it's been fun, but I miss home and my friends and ...

      ... were given a tour of the factory and shown the production method. Basically Pisco is a liquor obtained from distilled wine and in many ways is a South American version of brandy. The grapes used for Pisco are the varieties that are usually used to make sweet wines like Moscatel. The distillation process is one by which the mixture is boiled, turned into vapour and then cooled and condensed back into liquid form. Along the way it gains in alcoholic content. The ...
