La Sarena and the Elqui Valley

... into Chile, we took a bus, on Thursday, to San Pedro de Atacama. Since we were leaving that night, we didn't bother to find a hostel and spent our day doing things like buying bus tickets and organizing my parents' Chilean phones.

... steel cylinder aged ones (which taste a bit like vodka) to the oaky reserve Piscos. We decided to buy a bottle. Later we took another bus to the tiny village of Pisco Elqui. Unfortunately by the time we got there dusk was nearing and the main Pisco distillery in the centre plaza was closed. We were forced to walk to the only other distillery in the area, which happened to be 4kms out of town. Along the way we tried to hitch a ride but the locals, who could ...

Mucho Stargazing!

A travel blog entry by ryanod1985

... people in the hostel in the makeshift bar was constructed on the roof.

After a tip from ppl in the hostel we headed to the beach the next morning. Far from a bustling tourist hotspot it was deserted apart from a few hardly sun worshipers. There was a fairly cool breeze blowing across the beach which made any other than lying flat an unpleasant experience without a shirt. We lay down for a few hours ...
