      ... 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 first needed to find a 'colectivo' to take ...

      ... views of the city and ocean. The views continued on top where you could watch the surfers tackling one tube wave after another to your left or watch the continuous loading and unloading of the container ships in port on your right.
