Go to bus terminal La Serena to pick up ticket, I pay 4,800.
No problems. Have to hang around to 11.45pm to catch bus.
Arrive and sleep for a while, hang out until bus time then join throng on forecourt.
1 hour later still no bus, go in to consult Tur-Bus attendant.
Am informed at this stage that I should have been waiting on the main highway, not 300 yards away.
This pissed me off severely.
La Serena is a bit like France in its approach and attitude toward tourists.
The bus left without me because I was foreign (basically).
This is funny: unfortunately @ 1.45am I don’t see the funny side.
