we got the bus up to san pedro (in total the journey lasted over 24hrs). this morning - at 4am - we took a tour up to the el tatio geysers to see them at sunride (later on in the day the steam disappears and you can see them properly). the ride up in to the mountains was quite long and very very bumpy - too bumpy it would seem for a little american boy with a bowl hair cut who was sick and then said to his brother 'hey, i'm not in a real good mood'.
the geysers are 4300m above sea level and it was -8 degrees when we arrived so while we watched the earth bubbling and boiling we were loosing sensation in our hands and feet! we did get to swim in a thermal pool though which warmed us up a little. on the way back to san pedro we stopped occasionally at good 'photo oppurtunities' - i got really in to it and was acting like a right tourist. miss harriet would have been proud.
oh and then we ate llama - it was actually really nice!
