Hi everybody, Emma here.

Today was the second day of our stay at the Atacama dessert in Chile.
After having the best sleep in a long time we had breakfast and started to get ready for our first horse riding trip in the Atacama dessert! To get ready we had to put on helmets and chaps which are ankle to knee leg protectors. We met our horse riding instructor and he led us to the horses. When we got to the stable we got on our horses mine called Diamond, Alicja´s Lascar after a volcano, Patrick´s Resongon which means impatient and Antonina´s called Guinda which means Cherry. It was Patricks first time horse riding and he fell in love with it at once. We went riding around town and we looked so extraordinary that tourists even stopped to take pictures of us. We all had such a good time we decided to do it tomorow.

The next day we did another horse ride in the afternoon hoping to catch a glimpse of the amazing sunset. We travelled all the way on horesback to a place called the Death Valley. The Death Valley was originally called "Mars Vally" because thier is red sand and the big rocks which gives the image of Mars. But then it got changed to "Death Valley" because nothing lives there. It was really fun and after me, Dad, Patrick, Antonina and Alicja had their horses running, I thought it was life threatening but my siblings seemed to think that they were having
the time of thier lives.

Okay. Bye for now,

The lost tribe
