We had our first potential hiccup in our travels. Someone got overzealous throwing out papers and mistakenly threw out his (hint, hint) tourist card for Chile.

****! Somehow the volume on the alarm (Laura's Ipod) was on low. Oh yeah that's right, I turned it down when I was playing doodle jump (no pun intended) in the bathroom the previous night.

Definitely our favorite place we had stayed after a month in South America. Online reviews complained about its location. We didn't think the walk was bad. The place's charm and Adriana's hospitality easily outweigh any concerns about the location anyways. Super comfortable room and legitimately hot shower at all times. Adriana's homemade treats were the star of the show though. I highly recommend staying here.
