La Serena was our last stop before we had to be in Santiago to start out teaching. After non stop travelling for two months we really wanted to take it easy and relax for a couple days and this is the perfect place to do so. We were a short walk away from nice beaches along the coast and we were still pretty far north so it was very hot. We spent our days exploring the city and laying on the beach. Our third day here we went to the nearby town of Coquimbo. It was just a short ten minute bus ride away and is a port city. Here we had some great fresh sea food. The last day at the beach we met some Chilenos that were fanticos about the soccer team Universidad de Chile. They called themselves "hooligans" and they were drinking wine out of a melon. They dressed us up in their teams cloths and loved taking many pictures of us.
Currently Eric and I just finished up teaching English in Chile for a year and are now traveling around South America. We dont know exactly where we are going or when we will be home, and that is a beautiful feeling!... full info
