Day 5

A travel blog entry by tsundy

... 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.

A travel blog entry by jamsheedmaster


... America Line is celebrating its 140th year, so there are all kinds of extra parties and events. Mostly sales related of course – but that’s why it’s been around for so long I suppose. The last cruise also marked the 750th voyage for the Veendam. She’s a stout old girl although the rough seas around here have put their marks on her.
