... both the Chilean and Bolivian border, so from here we will have the option to either still try to go to the Chilean desert, or if timings are tight move into Bolivia straight away.

After that, we went out for a wander around the city and to get some food as were starving. When walking towards town, we found a pharmacy and for some reason I wanted to go inside. When I did I ...
