Welcome! Weekend is finally here. I thought I won’t make it – but here I am, still standing. My time in Antofagasta was very productive in blog posts. We have found with Elena a great host where I could just relax after exhausting last few days. I’ve never actually intended to go to Antofagasta, it wasn’t even on my way to Peru. Elena wanted to visit her friends who were participating in Chess championship and I needed a break at the seaside.
Let me present you a short documentary video about the most amazing thing that happened to me in Chile – visit at the astronomical observatory with the biggest radiotelescope in the world! I could have written about it but I thought I’d try to cut a video and after many long hours here it is. Sorry for the quality though, I don’t have proper equipment… It’s my virgin video!
I’ve been twice to San Pedro de Atacama. After my first visit I’ve decided it just wasn’t enough as the oasis and surroundings have so much to offer. It’s one of the most touristic regions in Chile and definitely one of the most expensive ones. And why is it so? It’s in the middle of the desert, there shouldn’t be anything in there, right? Wrong. There’s plenty.
