I've now reached San Pedro de Atacama, in the middle of the driest desert in the world, after 5 days travelling with Pachamama Bus.
Day 1: Santiago to Coquimbo
Day 2: Coquimbo to Bahia Inglesa
Day 3: Bahia Inglesa
Today was a break day where we got out into the nearby towns to have a look around, and check out the local food offerings. Caldera is a small town near Bahia Inglesa that is little more than a port town outside of the summer months, but which turns out to be home to the Chilean miners who were trapped underground around 10km away. In the evening we got together for a big Chilean asado, with the usually huge quantities of meat.
Day 4: Bahia Inglesa to Antofagasta
Day 5: Antofagasta to San Pedro
