    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 …

    Day 212 The time difference between here in the UK is only four hours, so we started the morning by making a couple of calls. At breakfast, we saw Sonja and Lukas before heading into town. La Serena is very elegant and quite relaxed. Parts of it are oddly familiar and, on the streets with large department stores, you could easily be walking through a town centre in Britain. On our way into town, we heard a commotion as a motorcade of vehicles ...

    ... us to the valley, it was the chance to see some of the world's best star gazing sky. Astronomers from around the globe have to sign up to a two year waiting list to be allowed to work in one of Elqui Valley's top notch observatories for just one week. And there are countless tours to said observatories for curiously novices like ourselves to explore the sky using some of the world's best telescopes. So we made our way inland from La Serena to a town called ...

    ... friends (all the stray dogs) and strolled along the coastline, ecstatic to breath in the oxygen as it was the first time we had been at sea level in 6 weeks. Discovering the markets and impressive shopping centres (we didn't expect them in South America) we reflected on our travels and how the last 3 weeks of our travels was a 'holiday'.

    ... 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 ...
