We headed out of the EAAF Nature Reserve, and crossed the border into San Pedro de Atacama, Chile on Saturday morning. After a few nights of roughing it in minus temperatures and sleeping bags, we were looking forward to some sun and comfort in the desert!
The day after the salt flats, we woke up and did our best from getting any salt on our stuff when getting ready and leaving (I failed…I had a nice amount of salt on pretty much everything I was wearing!).
A quick clip of us messing around during our 4×4 adventure through the Salt Flats of Uyuni!
We left La Paz on Wednesday afternoon to head to the airport, and after experiencing La Paz traffic on the way into the city, we didn’t expect anything less to be stuck in even more traffic this time round. The reason for the traffic however, was a bit different this time round..
Having said our goodbyes to Peru on Monday, we continued our South American adventure onto Bolivia, beginning with La Paz.
Hello everyone! Once again it’s been a busy week. We got to Puno in the south of Peru last Saturday after a long day’s bus travel from Cusco, travelling for about twelve hours in total. Luckily, the buses here so far have been so good, with this one having reclining seats and Lord of the Rings for entertainment!
It’s been a busy and tiring week, with a lot of early mornings, and a huge amount of walking, but it was definitely worth it after finally seeing one of the wonders of the world…
So after a journey of more than twenty fours hours after leaving home, and almost a collision every few seconds from the airport to the hotel, we finally arrived yesterday evening at our first destination, Lima, the capital of Peru. After a quick bite to eat and catching up on some much needed rest yesterday, our real introduction to Lima began today, and we’ve already grown to like this place.
