The Atacama is a huge desert, yet it only takes a handful of cars to get going to where you need to be! As in entire Chile you can basically only travel North or South, nearly all traffic goes a long distance and it’s easy to find a ride to Chile’s capital city Santiago. But seriously, I need to see a tree, or a bunch of trees. The people I’ve taken rides with tell me that around the city of La Serena the vegetation will return. Maybe even rain! I’m looking forward to it.
