So, for the second time in two days I have missed the bus and I am stuck, this time, for 5 hours, just when I was ready to move on.
Yesterday's escapade involved me sitting merrily at platform 7 in Santiago's bus station, thinking the bus was only slightly delayed, when all the time it turned out that each company has their own platforms and there were two platform 7s. Of course, I was sitting at the wrong one and my bus had already left.
Today I can't really say what happened. When I bought my ticket to La Serena yesterday, the lady in the office told me the bus could leave from any of platforms 1 to 10
And now I am plan-less for 5 hours whilst I wait for the bus. Hence the rambly and rather pointless entry you are now reading!
Valparaiso seems alright, a coastal port with decent weather and a beach. There´s a nice old town up on the hills with lots of views and alleyways over the port. So, off to consult the Lonely Planet for things to do, and have the first of what I suspect will be several cups of coffee!!!
