The rest of Atacama - Altiplano lakes, Atacama Salar and cosmic night !

Hi all,

As always a bit behind on the blog, availability of the internet as usual...

Our last day in Atacama we went out in the Altiplanos to have a look at the highest lakes in the region, on the way we got the opportunity to visit the Atacama salar, an amuse-bouche in anticipation to Uyuni.

The highlight of our day was spent in the evening, we got the opportunity to go on a cosmology telescope night - 10 massive telescopes and a live laser-driven description of our universe was an amazing experience; the sky in atacama is amongst the best in the world and I'm thankful for having been able to observe the world we live in in such details. Hope you enjoy the pics.

Speak soon !
