San Pedro de Atacama

After cruising through the salt desert we went ‘down’ to San Pedro de Atacama, a very known place for watching stars, hosting one of the most famous observatories. But the city is also in the desert and has canyons around: We went on a quite thrilling mountain bike ride, six hours in the heat, crossing rivers, riding on the edge of the canyon and getting hot sand blown into the face.
