A waving hand and fancy cardboard sign in Puerto Natales. It ended with little bit of blood, scraped head and huge milanesa in Rio Gallegos. What an adventure.
We were in the small town in the middle of nowhere in Argentina. Only few people drinking coffee in the gas station. No one knew when is the next bus out of here coming or where will it stop. To make everything even better we had no Argentinian pesos. What a wonderful day which started with really bright idea. But lets get back to the beginning.
We paid for the trip and went back to hotel. Tana was stressed because of the rule that all the slow people will be left behind and won't get to the top. She read somewhere that it happend to some other group. I was not worried, we were in good shape and did lot of hiking in past few months in high altitudes. I believed that we can make it.
Two day trip to Lauca national park. Not as adventurous as we expected. Still we managed to rent a car for the first time in South America and spend much more time than expected in it. On top of that we saw nice lake, snow capped mountains and even llama giving birth.
Few days in Arica turned out to be better than we expected. Ocean views, city walks, reasonable prices and amazing pastry. All in one small Chilean town.
Renting a bicycle and visiting two interesting places south of San Pedro de Atacama - Laguna Cejar and Ojos del Salar. Christmas shopping and searching for a Christmas dinner. All that in three days.
It's been almost a month since our arrival to Bolivia. Surprisingly our last week in the country looked pretty well planed. We wanted to visit two towns - Sucre and Potosi. Final stretch will be a tour through Uyuni salt flats after which we'll end up at the chilean border.
Visiting Chile for the first time is unforgettable experience. Travelling from Bolivian salt flats and spending few nights in San Pedro de Atacama.
