Altiplano 2008

My first visit in Atacama Desert and Altiplano has taken place in 2008, after a 10-days journey in Patagonia. I come to San Pedro de Atacama town only with a photo bag, tripod, and a market bag full of my personal belongings. I have nowhere to stay and I walk around the dusty streets till I find a place to accommodate. During the next week I meet the drought and burning sun in the Tropics, I ride bicycle through the desert watching the sky full of stars, I freeze expecting the sun to rise on a land of 4,600 m above the sea level, and I see one of the most beautiful sunsets over the salty lake full of pink flamingos.
