humberstone ghost town, chile

it's very uncommon that a ghost town is so well preserved; it seems even more uncommon for all of the grounds to be accessible for visit due to the nature of safety. i had the best time visiting this site, so much so that i needed to come back the next day with bunny masks and other photo props.

iquique, chile

with giant fruit shaped juice stands, facades like a giant movie set, ceramic ducks display in the park, tide pools brimming with life, beaches, pirate ship, fish market, casinos, flea markets, party stores (with animal face masks), and proximity to incredible ghost towns, iquique was full of weirdness which matched my sensibility nicely. actually, i could not get enough of this place...

san pedro de atacama, chile

i was so excited to finally see the desert of san pedro. i love the desert and we found it to be filled with magical places such as laguna cejar, a saltwater lake where one can float dead-sea-style. we also saw the "eyes of the salar," two circular sinkholes with stunning reflections and a beautiful sunset at laguna tebinquiche. the next day we visited the geysers del tatio, the amazing geothermal range for sunrise. despite the freezing temperatures, we dipped into the thermal baths and marveled at the steaming geysers.

in the spirit of adventure

after much time at home, i decided to take advantage of having so few responsibilities. i am in chile, perhaps argentina, perhaps peru for three weeks and then colombia for three weeks. i look forward to being on the road again, more soon.
