I not only tried a typical Chilean dish but also tried a delicious Chilean drink. If you haven’t read my post on living in Chile then I should inform you that there are two things that are constant in Chile, endless amounts of delicious ice cream and women wearing ugly jeans. I have now confirmed men wear ugly jeans but I digress.
The Atacama Desert is such a unique place in the world. To actually think that I didn’t know much about the desert until I started living in Chile is beyond me. This picture is of the Salar de Tara (Tara Salt Flat) in the Atacama Desert. The tour has to be done by 4×4 and the Salar de Tara is the last thing you see on the tour. It was very impressive to see all of the unique rock formations and landscapes scattered throughout the Atacama Desert.
Cerro’s in Spanish are hills and Santiago, CHILE is filled with them. The border with Argentina is home to the massive Andes mountains and a short drive away from the city you can access the highest peak in the western hemisphere, Mount Aconcagua.
