A fond farewell to the desert

Waking up in yet another beautiful place, this time in the Valle de la Luna, seems too good to be true!

In fact it probably is too good to be true too, I’m nearly out of water and food and my skin is crying out to be cleansed of salt and sand so it’s looking like my love affair with this valley has come to an end. The normal world full of other Humans is calling me back.

Well that was until I bumped into a very lovely Chilean family who were the first tourists of the day in the Valle de la Luna, the father tried picking up my bike whilst I did the  ‘no water’ mime to the mum who filled all three bottles up on the bike and some more in my main big bottle, they also gave me 3 bananas which pretty much gave me another day exploring the valley before heading into the next town for a battery change and shower on route to the Bolivian border.

I also finally worked out that sheltering for two hours at midday really saves you for the rest of the day.

The last shot is my parting cup of coca leaf tea with the desert!

I’ll be back soon…..
