Coquimbo, Chile

This part of the Chilean coastline was once a haunt of pirates.
I visited the old lighthouse.
The capital of the region is La Serena. The area makes its money from Copper mining and through it supports some excellent universities.
Every child, no matter how poor, is guaranteed a good education.
