Dogs of San Pedro

I had an afternoon to kill, prior to heading back towards Arica.  So what’s a boy to do?  Well in my case I wondered around the village taking pictures of anything that caught my fancy.  But one possible theme leapt out at me – the many dogs around the streets would make a lovely topic […]

Extreme Landscapes

I’m now back in Arica following my trip to San Pedro de Atacama and Bolivia.  I have a couple of things to deal with here before heading back to Lima for my flight home. I’ve been foiled by this computer in the hotel from getting a decent image gallery up from the last eight days […]

Laguna Colorada, Bolivia

We’re about 120km from the nearest town, so zero connectivity here. This will be posted on my return. We’re at around 4900m up in a small hostel near Laguna Colorada.

Dad´s Headstone

Had my father’s headstone delivered and installed yesterday. It was a fairly sombre moment, and my last goodbye to him.  I won’t go back soon. Unfortunately the computer I’m trying to upload my photos to won’t play ball, so no pictures for the moment.  Sorry.  Maybe tomorrow when I get to San Pedro de Atacama. […]

Itinerary Options

I’m still trying to decide what to do next, but I think I’m forming a plan. I did debate staying here for all the time I have, teaching some web stuff maybe, for free.  But nobody seemed that interested when I mentioned it, so I think it’s worth heading off. I’ve already been to San […]
