La Serena, Chile

Heading south by bus, a short stop over in a large coastal town called La Serena, 21 May, oh and by the way, we experienced an earthquake!!

sunny 25 °C

Just one night here before heading inland to our next destination.
First we needed to refuel. And Amanda needed to spend some time getting to grips with her new toy... [author´s correction: her new phone...]

That night, we were woken in the early hours by a loud noise and the bed shaking. The shutters and wardrobe doors banging. The earth was literally moving beneath us, be it for only 5-10 seconds! We were witnessing a 5.3 magnitude earthquake!
