... laundry done - but being the cheapass I am, I didn't want to pay 2000 CHP per kg. Afterwards we caught a bus to Coquimbo to see the Cruz del Tercer Miliu (sp?) cross. 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.

... should have been even bigger! It was still amazing to see such a huge creature up so close, and he certainly let us know when we got too close!
The hostel, as i said before, was really nice, however the next door neighbours dog appeared to live by sleep all day bark all night.
