So, we rolled into Arica about 730 this morning, and after a night of bad movies (XXX and Alien vs. Predator) and very little sleep im pretty much exhausted. We found a hostel in the center of the city, and it is very comfortable, but we are finding that Chile is not the place to travel if you are on a budget. Everything is very expensive here compared to everywhere else in South America. It's not that much cheaper than being in the States, so I think that Mike and I are going to leave either tomorrow or the next day. Today, the two canadian, Mike, and myself all went out to the beach here. We sat around and chatted and just enjoyed the beautiful weather. I even finished a book , yeah!!!! After that Mike and I walked back and had a little dinner and a couple of beers, oh, and dont forget that pisco sour, whcih was a lot stronger than I was expecting. Now, here I am, spending my night on the computer trying to catch up with my journal entries , since there werent many comps in Bolivia. I need to go to Bed! Oh yeah, one more thing happened today! A bird pooped on me. I was walking along the beach and felt something splat of my hand. I must admit it was a good shot, so hopefully now I will have good luck. Gotta love birds!
