Arica, Chile. Woke up around 9:30, breakfast in Lido, then left the ship around 11:30 to see what was in Arica. Not much. Walked to the "cathedral" and photographed inside. Probably the nicest building we saw, but up close it showed some wear and tear. Arica appears to be situated in a desert. Very little vegetation other than palm trees, bouganvelia and hibiscus. We decided ...

... took us back to town. We walked around the town centre, up the hill to the flag and statue of Jesus and to the port to watch the sea lions. Thinking about what we would like for tea John said we should get eggs to go with our tuna pasta bolognaise. It was then we spied a lady selling eggs individually in the street so after a bit of a discussion we established the price of two eggs and were given them in a plastic carrier bag in a cardboard egg cup. The lady seemed delighted to ...

Arica 12th-14th Nov - Priya

... the golden shadows fade to deep ruby before melting into the shadows. The moon was now waxing toward full but we were still able to make out beautiful bright stars through the dry, clear night air. Those clear night skies would certainly be missed!

Mr Conductor put on another film around 11: Iron Man 3. Now I am not particularly an Iron Man fan but wouldn’t object to watching it on a rainy Saturday when there was nothing else to do. 11pm at night, when the bus is ...

Arriba Arica!

... with friends. She lives in Santiago, had lived in Australia for five years not long ago and ... offered me a place to stay in Santiago! I couldn't believe it! What a kind and generous person! So I accepted!

That night I had another "date" with Richard. He wouldn't stop looking at me. It was very sweet. But I had to prepare for the next adventure. An early morning flight to Santiago awaited, and the opportunity to develop a new friendship : ).


Chile - San Pedro de Atacama to Arica

... and reserve forces, old and young, male and female, some far more fearsome than others! All very stirring stuff.

We stay for a few days to sample the terrific fish here and eat several times in the food area of the Mercado Centenario. One stall we go to has a terrific set lunch including the best fish soup we have ever tasted.

Iquique is definitely worth a visit if travelling through Chile if only for a night. It is time for us to move on for us and we jump on ...

As good as it gets in Arica

This hotel is a bit expensive for what you get but as good as it gets in Arica. The location is pretty good, located right by the ocean with views of the Morro in the distance. Breakfast is quite poor. Staff are helpful and professional.
