Having crossed the border successfully, our mini-bus pulled up in the dusty mudbrick town of San Pedro de Atacama. We arranged to meet up with our group from Uyuni again later that evening and made our way to our campsite nearby. This is Chile, the land where prices double and we must camp to survive the high cost of everything. Immediately we noticed differences in every aspect of life compared to Bolivia.

It was a small river and romain tried to ride across and ended up with wet shoes and pants before he saw that there is actually a small bridge. I walked across the small bridge and remained dry.
