BOLIVIA. THE RICHEST AND THE POOREST


Salar de Uyuni
Isla del Sol
Isla del Sol, Lago Titicaca
A country of statistical extremes, landlocked Bolivia is the highest and most isolated country in South America. Also considered as the poorest one in South America but one of the richest in natural resources.
It has the largest proportion of indigenous people, who make up around two-thirds of the population and most of them speak Quechua. 
Bolivia has it all, apart from beaches (the Chileans left them without a sea outlet after La Guerra del Pasifico).

CHILE - THE NORTH. Highlands, deserts and waves.


Back to CHILE, from Santiago to Arica
La Portada in Antofagasta - reminded me so much of The Great Ocean Road in Australia
Atacama desert
I came back to Santiago after a month in Patagonia, wandering between Chile and Argentina. The smog was quite startling again, especially after the immensity of Patagonia.

The cheapest flights in Europe
