La Serena

Quick photo update:  After awaking in a pile of trash behind a gas station (set up tent in the dark), we began the perilous journey to La Serena.  After 50k or so, our car broke down and we had to call a towtruck (an interesting experience given the language gap).  We made our way to La Serena where an extremely lucky course of events brought us to a mutual friend's house and we were able to go climbing in the afternoon.  Todo Bien...
