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.

Basically, the tour guide was refusing to allow us to join his three-day tour a day late, even though he would be covering everything we had agreed to as part of our two-day tour during the last two days of that tour. I tried to ask him what the problem was--we would get ourselves up to Putre, check into the approved hotel (which the tour company head ...

... you think me mad if I moved to South America just to eat avocados?
This was also the first time I had a set lunch in South America. A couple of dollars for 2 or 3 courses, with a freshly squeezed juice. That's right! Freshly squeezed! You know, that obscure beverage that you pay $6 for in Melbourne made from imported fruit that ripened at a location far far away from where it was born.
It was also at this market that I met Richard. Richard approached me ...
... trouble climbing up the bus's three tiny stairs!
I have to admit though that it turned out to be a really great day (considering the sedentary circumstances) and by the end of the 13 hour odyssey the whole group was surprisingly united. The highest point in the park was Lake Chungara at 4,500 meters (14,764 ft) above sea level. If I thought I was hot **** for living on the banks of Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world, you ...
