... Captain warned those of us sailing to the horn that we would learn first hand about pitch! This will be an interesting ride. This evening, we had a special dinner of Indonesian and Phillipino food in the Lido (buffet). Yummy! And all the staff was in native dress. The Indonesians are particularly chipper and friendly; it is great to see that their culture gets some special recognition on board. They sign on for some long duty tours and are away from home for many ...

... to Tacna and then cross the border by collectivo. This meant a bus from the airport into downtown Tacna, and then finding a collectivo to hustle me over the border. I was a bit worried about this - I was happy to do it during the day, but there was a risk I'd arrive in Arica at night and have to navigate to the hostal - the night brings out the bad in people. With the 30 min delay in my flight, I wasn't sure how this was going to work especially given there are a couple ...

... in ripped tee shirts trying to run off with your luggage and much much more. So you can imagine my surprise when I got there at around 9pm and there was just one orderly line to leave Peru and another one to enter Chile. The whole event took less than 30 minutes.

Another thing that made crossing into to Chile that much more dramatic was that everything is 3-4 times more expensive than Peru, but this blow to your bank account ...

Ghost towns (with no Health and safety- hurrah)

... They are better known for carrying out mummification of their dead from 5000BC (2000 years before it was practiced in Egypt) until 1500BC. They removed all internal organs and dried the insides with hot stones before stuffing them with straw and ash. The bones of the arms and legs were replaced by sticks and the whole body bound up with reeds. The face was covered in a paste sculptured with a nose and slits for eyes and mouth. A wig was made of human hair and attached to the skull. ...

P.S. Chile - Part 1

... impeded only by standing on a massive dead crab – but even that didn’t ruin the moment.

My plan was to move on from Arica fairly sharpish (time was ticking…) but once I got there, I sort of crashed and stayed for a few days. I was knackered, and it was so relaxing! And I’d also managed to acquire my latest epic sunburn by falling asleep on the beach.

And then came the first major disaster when I tried to ...

    Fun hostel, a little way from the centre, but good nonetheless. Had a very warm welcome here and was made to feel part of the disfunctional family during my stay. There are BBQ nights with lots of pisco, an organised pub crawl, and for the quieter moments, a ping pong table and hammock in the yard. Quieter when I was here, out of main season, but excellent laugh on the busier nights. Warning: Your liver may suffer if you stay here!
