    Today was a long day driving and flying through and over the Atacama Desert. It is full of open cast copper mines. Chile is the world's largest copper producing country and has six of the 10 largest copper mines in the world and it was clear to see as we drove through the desert. For all the working mines there were many derelict ones, which included all the old houses with no ...

    26 hours of travelling.....yuck. Overnight bus from Calama to Arica stuck between three Chilean ladies snoring so bad they rattled the bus more than the bumpy road.

A bus passes in the other direction bound for Santiago 2000km ...

The English ran out as we reached the most interesting part, the mummies. It was amazing that the desert has preserved clothing, pots and other artefacts for ...

    ... in Arica had been a little chilly and cloudy but by the time we left our hotel, just before lunch, the sky was beaming bright and blue above us. We planned to walk up to a nearby viewpoint, stopping for lunch along the way. Although Arica is not particularly touristy (it seems to be more of a transit point for people on their way into Peru), we had no trouble finding a restaurant and were soon tucking into one of the best meals of our entire trip: Pete had a fillet steak and I ...
