    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.

    We found a cheapish sushi place for dinner with a promo on Chinese Tsing-tao beer. The beer was good and the sushi wasn't bad so all in all,we left happy.

    The sun was setting as we left the restaurant so we headed back to the hostel via a nearby supermarket to buy some breakfast supplies and drinks. This supermarket even had Somersby cider so Maria was now really happy.

    ... up teenagers seeking to avoid the wrath of their fathers. I am told that many Chilean parents actually believe that the Trauco fathered their illegitimate grandchildren.

    So while they may be hopelessly gullible, the Chileans are some of the warmest and most endearing people I have met on my travels.

    I left the deserts of Chile reeking of camp fire, with a full repertoire of dirty Chilenismos, Chamelfo!

    All was well with the world. A great lunch with great wines and conversation. Vivian, the Public Relations Manager, was a great host and we chatted about wine, Limarí and got onto the subject of Pisco. I recanted the tale of my wild dreams from the artisan Kappa Pisco to her and she said that although Kappa was good, her husband and her were also producing an exceptional Pisco which was even better! This ...

    ... the club was huge but strange as it sounds we were approached by bouncers and asked if we wanted que jump and free entry. We were surprised at this but a few people we were out with said it had happened to them before as the know the gringos will be spending money on drinks inside. Crafty trick! The club was really good with an outside stage too. The music was a little repeated but then again that could just be my lack of memory due to too many ...

    ... The sunsets are great here in the mountains. One of the astronomers that works for FERMI Lab and is currently working on a Dark Energy Survey on the 4.0-m telescope offered to give us a tour of the 4.0-m, as I hadn't seen it yet. It was crazy how big it was! And downstairs in the control room, there were three computers, each with eight different ...
