Chile`s Dry North
Hour 20 of bus journey from Santiago to Cusco. Iquique, Chile.
The occasional cities and towns of houses stacked on houses are the only thing that breaks up the homogenous stretch of coastline. Iquique is made up of brown sand, small tin-roofed houses stacked one on top of the other, and industrial works and what look like mines lining the outskirts. Everything seems to be vying for space as close to the ocean as possible. ...
... was around 10:00pm and all we wanted was the perfect spot to wake-up in. There was no light, but we heard of a camping place 2 kilometers within the park. As we followed the signage, the dirt road deteriorated more and more. Then the road lead us right into a rushing river. Maybe 30 feet across the river was the road that could bring us to our oasis!

There are lots of 'Mom and Pop' stores in the city ...
... went and sat in a park looking like creeps getting high. It was so great to catch up with them again.
The whole time walking around Santiago, sitting in parks, eating, the city was throwing culture at you. With instillation about the place, graffiti, music, dance, and much more. To sum up i was shocked by how much i like the city, i think its a place i want to return to to experience it more including the night life. Even if i get a chance study there.
