... about buying a car. It was just too much afford and maybe even hopeless as we couldn’t speak Spanish.

In the end we booked a rental car on the next day. But there was no car available before the 8th so we still had some days to spend in Arica. We explored the city, saw a parade, bought a mobile phone simcard and made some plannings for the next days. If you need a simcard you can buy it at the shop of the company. We chose Claro.

Lila left early the next morning to go hiking and continue her trip in Peru. Natalie and I left a few hours later to cross the border into Chile. After being a little surprised at the meager accommodations on the bus (we've been pampered ...

... the passports and we were able to deduce, based on conversations with other passengers, that there would be a police checkpoint at some point in the middle of the night, when they would need to see our passports. We assumed that he didn’t want to have to wake us up but we still felt rather unsettled at the thought of being without them.
