Valley de luna
the land looks like its from the moon
well for my spring break i decided to head up north. My first stop, San Pedro de Atacama- the driest desert in the world. The bus ride from santaigo was long, but nice. we rode along the coast, desert, mountains,... every type of scenery.
San Pedro is this small village... set up for tourist. there are many things to do. I went sandboarding, valley of the moon, saw geysers, and went to this awesome cave party. For two days, my days were nonstop.. waking up at 4am, getting back at 2pm, resting and then going again at 6pm.
After two days, i met some cool independent travellers and we decided to do the salt flat tour in bolivia. THis, by far, is probably one of the highlights of my trip. I mean, the scenery, the landscape I saw and just the different contrasting colors of nature is indescripable. WE saw desert, salt flats, and lagoons. For 4 days, we drove in a 4 wheel drive jeep, all of us just staring out the window, listening to some good ol Bob Marely and other classic, with our mouths wide open becuase we could not believe in what we saw. tedious,
At some pretty lake
the crew and I at the first lake.
but worth it. the food was not bad either, our driver was soooo nice, and the accomondations were not bad. just look at the pictures
Next stop.. slowly making my way back to santiago down the coast...
