... headed off for the baños. I thought he was trying to sell me something, but what he wanted was to go on a date. Aiy korumba! With no common language, I thought this would be interesting (and Cheryl wouldn't let it go!) so agreed to meet later that night.
After taking a turn around other parts of the market (it would seem this is where all of our junk ends up - some of the stuff I saw took me way back to my youth!), we headed back into town for a walk along ...
... following immediately after so had jumped back on my board and managed to accidentally surf 2 more big waves (lying down) out of pure fear as I hadn't managed to turn away from it! After a long wait (and seeing a big turtle's head (3/4 foot in size) about 6 metres away from me) I then had the biggest wave and much the same happened but harder so I did another wee stand then decided enough 'drowning' had happened for ...
... cans but unfortunately the bottle of wine didnt survive.
Yo Yo managed to cook a lovely spread even though everything landed in the sand at some point and we had to eat it with our hands straight off the BBQ. We were well and truly stuffed by the time we ate all the fish, sausages and BBQ´d vegetables with cheese and rewarded ourselves with a ...
... 2 nights of not enough sleep.
When we eventually went out at 1.00pm Arica in general also got a whole lot better than that initial bus station area. The high street is pedestrianised (unheard of in these parts) with a nice mix of established department stores, banks, cafes and smaller shops. We have lunch at a cafe and then walk to a couple of beaches down the coast. Again the town has actually done ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHi Casa De Huespedes Arica
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!
