    This is one of the most popular types of transport within the city and also between La Serena and Coquimbo. These are called "MICROS", there are many of them with different routes that covers almost the whole city. They stop everywhere, every minute.
    This is a good way to get to know better a city like Coquimbo.
    Is also very cheap: US$0.50

  • Fishermen colorful boats

    I feel attracted to fishermen boats....with all those colors to be distinguished in the sea..... I always try to imagine the journeys of those colorful boats............which look so tiny in the wide ocean.

  • Pelicans......

    It's really interesting to see Pelican's behavior.....they're always close to the fishermen because of the fish...of course!. I like to walk along the beach and simply let my thought fly......
