Fashionable cafe's and shops line the streets, and an evening harbour-front stroll will no doubt include a serenade by street musicians and entertainers. The town projects an artsy vibe, with a contemporary museum and the Brava Beach open air sculpture park, displaying large works in steel, concrete, wood, iron, and marble. The fascinating Casa Pueblo, home of artist Carlos Paez Vilaros, is a dazzling white fantasy on a hillside overlooking the town.

  12:00am Punta Arenas, Chile
Punta Arenas lies atop rolling hills, looking out over the Strait of Magellan. In the days before the Panama Canal, this was a major port as ships plied the waters of Cape Horn. Punta Arenas remains a prosperous town, today, thanks to its rich natural resources. The city is also the gateway to Chilean Patagonia, a maze of fjords, rivers, steppes and mountains to the north. To the south lies the great frozen mass of Antarctica. Adventure awaits at this port near the end of the earth.

The Aysen region of Chile is wild and beautiful, with cliffs that drop into immense river valleys, numerous waterfalls and ravines that open into vast valleys alongside the Andes, which forms a natural barrier. Chacabuco is a popular entry port to this region. Lying at the eastern end of a narrow fjord, it is the main shipping port for the area and also serves as a popular jumping-off point into Western Patagonia.

The vast silence and sand dunes of the Atacama Desert are broken by the Azapa Valley, an agricultural oasis rich in tropical fruits. At the mouth of the valley lies the port of Arica, gifted with springtime temperatures all year long. Founded in 1570, Arica is Chile's fifth-oldest city and a commercial gateway for neighbouring Peru and Bolivia. It is a city rich in heritage and home both to a wrought-iron church designed by Gustave Eiffel and to pre-Columbian treasures from the Chinchorro culture dating back to 5,000 B.C.

  12:00am Callao, Lima, Peru
In 1535, Francisco Pizarro labelled the open plains where Lima now stands as inhospitable. Despite the verdict of the great conquistador, Lima became the centre of imperial Spanish power, a "City of Kings" where 40 viceroys would rule as the direct representatives of the King of Spain. With independence in 1821, Lima became Peru's capital. Near Lima, one of the world's most desolate deserts is home to the famed drawings of Nazca. These drawings inspired Erik von Daniken's best-selling book "Chariots of the Gods." With mysteries seeming to be part of Peru's history, perhaps these "drawings" are in fact "the largest astronomy book in the world."
