Day 60 - Travelled from Valpo to Vina - all of a 6 mile trip. Different place however, all beaches and casinos (well, one casino at any rate). Had a good look around, went to the main gardens, main square, Easter Island museum, beaches etc and found a reasonable hotel through hostelworld. Had conger fish (eel?) for dinner - very nice. A nice half litre of Carmenere and a few bottles of ale, and im ready for bed. Another wine trip tomorrow or Saturday, to the Casablanca Valley, should sign off my South American trip in style.

Day 61 - Checked out of the hotel i was in as they were useless. Breakfast was instant coffee and yogurt - cheers! Luckily there was a hostel next door to it so checked into that. Myself and a German lad has the choice of 5 dorms (3 double bunks in each) to ourselves. Not the first hostel ive been in that has been empty, but im sure NZ and Oz will be different.

Had a tremendous steak for my dinner, won a few bob in the casino and headed back to hostel around 11. There was some party going on in the hallway (bunch of Chilean / Spanish speakers) making a reet racket until after midnight, then they came back in dribs and drabs until around 7am. The hostel was also a pub and played the loudest music i've ever heard till around 4am. I got a great nights sleep! Funny thing is, only a few folk stayed, so i don't know what the craic was.
Day 62 - Went on a wine tour of Casablanca Valley, visiting 3 wine yards are tasting 6 wines. A nice way to start a day. Had to get back to Santiago to get the rest of my luggage and then head to airport for my midnight flight across the Pacific and through the international date line.

Day 63 - 25th October, a truly forgettable day.
