We are back from a little trip!

We went for a few days to the North of Chile. It was an approximately six hour drive there but what beautiful scenery along the way and there.

I won't ever forget this trip. I saw many things that I had never seen before. Chile is so diverse, it is truly amazing the differences from one location to another.

I tried papaya juice for the first time, ate several new kinds of sweets and candy and tried a seafood empanada!

We visited La Serena, Coquimbo, Valle de Elqui and a few other places along the way.

Armando showed me this place and I found it very beautiful. It was a fisherman's area with many boats.

I love the names on the boats. The one on the left is named Superman!

Lunch, I am awaiting a seafood empanada.

It was delicious! Sadly, I cannot remember the name of the seafood, because I had never tried it before. If I find out from Armando later, I will put the name here...

I hope you like the pictures.

I am going to sleep now, It's almost 3 a.m. and I didn't realize it!

I'm so glad that you're getting to travel and see Chilie. Thanks for sharing by way of pictures. A metal church - the acoustics must be different there. You look so content and happy. That makes me feel good. When I see small boats anchored out in the water like the ones in your pictures I always wonder how the owners get out to their boats.

We're off for a few days at the coast. No special reason - just a get away. Where do you plan to travel next?
