San Pedro de Atacama

The wild, wild west

sunny 26 °C

After our wonderful few days travelling 4x4 through the Salar de Yuyuni we crossed the border and landed in the desert town of San Pedro de Atacama, Chile. The little dirt roads were aligned with mud-brick shops, bars and restaurants which had not taken away from the cool, desert vibe of this little place. We spent a couple of days riding around, climbing up dirt mounds and checking the place out. And down at 2500m it was a welcome relief from the altitude of the past couple of months.

Next we were off to Argentina and the North western gem that is Salta.
