As we realized that we should have enough time to go all the way to San Pedro de Atacama, we moved on from the coastal region. The desert is in flowers as they had a lot of rain in the winter and this phenomena only happens rarely. So the road from Vallenar to Copiaco was the most colourful one we had done for a while with fields of pink, purple flowers covering the hills. People were stopping all along the way to take photos, it was a busy time as it was the end of the school holidays. So a lot of children enjoyed this view for the first time.

From Antofagasta, we drove towards the Atacama Desert, busy road with a lot of mining activities around , all the way to San Pedro de Atacama. We are just on the other side of the Bolivia border where we were a few months ago! Yesterday we visited the lagunes and volcanos region in the south. The landscape is unreal and the colours too, a very beautiful part of the world. Today we will visit the area around the town. Sunset is the time to be for a lot of places for the colours, but hard to be there always.
