Pachamama Tour to Northern Chile
13 May 2008 | Antafogasta, Chile
I´m now at the end of day 4 in my 10 day tour of northern Chile. Less than a few hundred km. north of Santiago, we hit the desert. Most areas had no rain in over 50 years - nothing but sand and rock, but it´s actually quite beautiful.
A refreshing stop was a 3 hour boat ride at the "National Reserve Pinguino de Humbolt", formed by 3 islands. Here we saw dolphins and penguins
Antafogasta, is a large moderm and bustling city in the middle of hundreds of kms. of desert.
I´m travelling with a gang of 9 others - 4 Brits, 1 German, 1 Irish, and 2 Dutch.
