Time Honoured Tradition To Get Enough Nutrition

Although Patrick did have to get up in the middle of the night to chase barking dogs away, we did have a good night sleep. When we woke up, it was already 8:30am. It is worth noting, however, that there is a 2 hour time difference between Peru and Chile. So it looked the same as 6:30am yesterday. After breakfast we packed the car and drove a little bit south. The roads in Chile are definitely much more organised than Peru – or most Latin American countries. There are clear rules on the roundabouts, there are traffic lights and nobody is honking their horn all the time.

We stopped for ’empanadas con queso y carne’ on the way. As it is Sunday, a lot of people were out on day trips and we joined the crowd in the roadside restaurant.

We drove past some rock carvings along the road. It was quite windy but we could make out shapes such as the sun and a tree.

We arrived in Iquique in the late afternoon and did some quick grocery shopping. We reached our campground not much later and spent some time on-line downloading new maps for Argentina and Chile and researching where to buy car insurance.

Oh yes, and we need to buy an adapter because the plugs in Chile are different…

It’s time honoured tradition
To get enough nutrition
Stay alive until’ you die
And that is the end of you
