    ... morning was too gray for any kind of decent views, though. Chileans call Arica "the city of eternal spring," but springtime often entails overcast mornings. We descended again to the city's cathedral, designed by Gustave Eiffel before he built the Eiffel Tower. Here, we finally found a handful of other people, also admiring the church's steel exterior and interior. The cathedral was really cool, and a highlight of Arica.

    We wandered around the ...

    ... Another tambo had been the main slaughterhouse site of the city, even though it was just as beautiful as the others.

The engine noise and vibration was loud but suddenly didn't ...

    ... we saw Thor in Spanish (fail) at the movies, and we went to a war museum which was basically a 'suck on that Peru' (Arica was once Peruvian, until the Chileans annexed it in 1880).

    ... we didn’t get off to a great start with our conductor either: as soon as the bus set off he came to check our tickets and at the same time, asked us to hand over our passports.

    "Hang on a second, we didn’t have to do this on our journey from Santiago! Why now?"

    Unfortunately, his reply was as unintelligible to us as our question probably had been to him: he did not speak any English. It soon became clear, however, that he was not going to move ...
