... ghostly quiet save for some soccer sounds emanating from a nearby restaurant. I refueled and watched the rest of the game there before setting out in search of a hostel. It did not take me long to find one. With no dormitories on offer I enjoyed the luxury of my own room. The joys of having a window overlooking the mountains all to myself!

Upon asking the hostel owners for a map of Pisco, they literally laughed in my face. With a town that ...

... and as we gained height, we even had to turn the windscreen wipers on – not really rain, more like low mist but the first moisture we had seen in Chile.

A travel blog entry by kittysheeran on Nov 16, 2013

Today we depart for San Pedro de Atacama. Our bus is at 5pm which should get us there for tomorrow morning at around 8am. The hostel we booked has check I'm at any time which will be good. We had a walk along the high street today to try and find some new track suit bottoms for Chris and some shoes for me (so that I don't have to wear my massive walking boots in the evening but have warmer shoes than flip flops!!) In the end ...
