Iquique, Chile

Iquique, Chile

It was like walking into the future as we pulled away from Peru and into Chile.  The gas stations actually have an assortment of automotive lubricants and a clean coffee station.  I was crying with joy when they asked me if my filter is clean of sand, since we are in...
Wrestling with Farm Animals

Wrestling with Farm Animals

We’ve been told by many locals that farms offer great bush camping, as the farmers always have well protected land from outsiders and if they are sociable, then you might get a chance to have a meal and share stories with them. So looking from the road we saw a line...
Our departure from Peru

Our departure from Peru

We each left a chunk of our hearts in Lima as we pulled away continuing south on Ruta 1. Lima was an amazing city with a coastline exactly the same as Venice Beach California minus the freaky people and Ferrari’s. It is truly a must see city for any person visiting...
