Elqui Valley, Chile
Happy birthday to my wonderful husband! Unfortunately, today was probably the dumbest day of our trip, as we had to make the long drive from the Elqui Valley to Santiago. We had a quick stop at the lighthouse in La Serena, which was sadly closed to visitors, and we had a tense moment where we almost ran out of gas! Plus the worst traffic once we got back to Santiago. But we had a delightful dinner at Bocanariz, complete with Chilean wine flights, and we finally managed to go to Emporia de la Rosa, the ice cream place everyone raves about that closes way too early. I got naranja con ginjere and it did not disappoint.
