    ... museum displays Chilean relics (uniforms, medals, personal items) from this battle in the War of the Pacific. It also features several plaques placed by Pinochet in which he lauds the glorious military heroes of Chile's past, extols Chile's modern military and refers to himself as "El Jefe" a lot. The plaques were pretty amazing, as was the militaristic music piped throughout the open-air museum and the primitive home video of a historical reenactment of the ...

    Arica, Chile. Woke up around 9:30, breakfast in Lido, then left the ship around 11:30 to see what was in Arica. Not much. Walked to the "cathedral" and photographed inside.

The museum was great, documenting the development of life pre Inca, Inca and European. There was no ...

    ... 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).

    Sadly Chile appears to be more expensive then we anticipated. Next destination: San Pedro de Atacama, a village (pop 1900) in the Atacama desert. Will be good to get out of these dry dusty towns at some ...

    ... at 6am, is NOT my idea of a good time for lots of guns, explosions, screaming and shouting. Especially from a video screen that is all of 2 feet from my face. The conductor had also decided to add to the ‘cosy atmosphere’ by switching off the air conditioning (apparently the people upstairs were too cold with it on); as a result, we spent most of the night slow-cooking to the soundtrack of machine gun fire.

    As our bus driver seemed as keen for this bus ...
