Isla las Damas/Pisco Elqui
Oh no/hurray! I´ve only got two weeks left, and I´m not sure how I feel about it!
Just got back to La Serena (yes, here again) after a day and a half in the Elqui Valley (Pisco Elqui). It was lovely and serene and the views are beautiful, and, best of all, they have sun there! The hostel I was staying in was lovely too, and served some delicious food (el Tesoro de Elqui, if anyone´s thinking of visiting Chile). I even had the dorm all to myself.
The Isla las Damas trip came off in the end (thank God; I think I would have gone crazy if I´d had to spend another day in La Serena). Saw lots of penguins and seals, but no dolphins or whales. Tried to take some pics but they´re not very good: had to zoom in so far and the boat was bobbing around so much ...
Tomorrow I´m off to Valparaíso.
