... an especially the supermarket - it's weird how priorities change on a trip like this. There was a mall nearby and it was a big one too. It had all the named brands you would expect in a western mall and it even had piped music playing. We were definitely back in a first world country. We didn't buy anything from the shops though, it just felt good to walk through and then grab a hot dog from the food court. As we were leaving, we stumbled across a ice cream shop ...
... walking to a seafood place that was recommended to us, instead of walking all the way back. Another 1-1.5 hours later we finally found the seafood spot.

We took a very long walk afterwards through the windy streets down the hill. Coquimbo reminded me of certain parts of Durban. Lots of rubbish littered the streets. Very hilly. Lots of houses missing due to what seemed like the ground beneath it crumbling. And lots of dog poop. But the views down this hill were ...
