After spending 3 out of the previous 4 nights on b*ses, we needed somewhere to break the journey. San Pedro de Atacama is a touristy town in the middle of the Atacama desert in northern Chile. Despite it being the driest desert in the world, we still managed to catch some rain there. It is very close to Bolivia so a lot of the tours and activities are very similar to activities on the salt flats tour (geysers, hot springs, lunar landscapes, flamingos, lakes etc.) we wemt on a few months earlier in Bolivia. For this reason and the recent onset of end-of-continent-laziness we were experiencing, we did very little during our three days there. We cycled out into the desert to see the sunset but could not decide between two viewing points and ended up between them and missing it. It was Easter week so there were some small religous processions shuffling around and we celebrated holy Saturday night with some rum and the gang in our hostel.
