Across the Border

After Lago de Titicaca we hopped on yet another 12 hour bus ride to the town of Tacna. Tacna borders Chile and since it was only seven in the morning we decided to cross the border right then instead of waiting and resting in Tacna. We arrived in Arica, Chile early in the morning and were greeted as always by eager taxi drivers who are even more eager to deliver you to their favorite hotel. After getting settled in we went for a walk and saw this nice little city and immediately noticed some subtle differences between Chile and Peru. We spent three days in Arica resting and planning the next portion of our trip..Patagonia. Above are a few pictures of Arica. The last one is of the Eiffel church they are quite proud of.
