I arrived in Chile from Bolivia, and got straight in San Pedro de Atacama, one of the places to visit in Chile. I immediately fell in love with this incredible country, its dry land, its amazing landscapes, the dunes. I enjoyed my time in the lovely little town, relaxing in one of its pretty cafes, drinking a beer with friends at night, and most of all, doing one of the many things to do in Chile: hiking, sandboarding, biking, star gazing, to name just a few.
A 24 hours bus ride took me to Santiago de Chile, not my favourite city in the world but nevertheless interesting for its street art and, especially to a former human rights lawyer like me, for its incredible exhibition of the Human Rights Museum. I did not spend too long there, because I was on my way to Uruguay.
The furthest South I have been was Torres del Paine, in the Chilean Patagonia. I was literally swept away by the wind there!
