When I arrrived in Arica, met this lovely Ozzie girl. Apparently I'd arrived right in the middle of the RipCurl Talent search and the town was brimming with surfers and a few celebrities, including Cameron Diaz! Needless to say, I headed straight down to the beach! Unfortunately didn't manage to catch Cameron but did see a guy in the airport who was having his photo taken with people.. I mustn't be well enough acquainted with my surfers!!
From Arica I went on a tour to a place called Parc National Lauca. So beautiful. Has to be one of the most undiscovered places of my trip so far. Saw some more guanacos, plus saw some lamas up close and some very friendly alpacas. Also saw some chinchillas, andean ducks, andean gulls. The scenery was really spectacular around the lakes and volcanoes.
