We arrived in La Serena. We settled in at the AURA Motel (Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy) at the University of La Serena. Tomorrow, we'll go up the mountain to the observatory, but for tonight, a great dinner on the beach. We originally were planning on going to a restaurant called Tololo Beach, but it was closed (it is the off-season for tourism, and their big national holiday was a few weeks ago, so not much is going on here now). We ended up going to a restaurant called Bakulic, and enjoyed pisco sours, empanadas, steaks, and seafood risotto on the beach. It was a great time!
