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!

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 ...

... 4 of the necessary paperwork for me for the border crossing with Chile. We made our way across, keeping humorous statements to a minimum and practising my polite hellos and smiles to the customs officials. The taxi took me straight to Arica bus terminal, where I quickly took a cab to my hostel. It was raining...I had arrived at the driest desert on earth. Where it rains roughly 6mm a year...and it was raining... Good-o... My hostess was very kind and allowed me to go and use ...
... day buying a new camera. Next day we were still a bit upset so didn’t do much.
Just before leaving Iquique Peter went paragliding from the hill (1000m) behind the town and landed on the beach. It was unusual as he was able to fly over the city. Not sure why anyone would want to hang by a few strings and bit of cloth but it takes all sorts.
After this bit of excitement we drove to a ghost town called Humberstone (a town developed solely for ...
... Santiago! I had no choice but to pack up and leave. However, like I said, I left it a bit late to stay with the magazine, and ended up a good five days behind schedule. I decided to hot foot it to Arica, North Chile, which wasn’t too far from La Paz, from where I could plan my next move.
So, I last left you all at the Bolivian / Chilean border, where after some very stringent border controls and a casual rifle through my suitcase, I was ...
