I cross the border before sunrise. At noon I reach the desert that I will be following for the next 2.000 km. Once out of the bushes the headwind gets extremely strong and I struggle to keep above 20 kmh. I know that my chances of any improvement until I reach Chile are close to zero as the wind always comes from the south. When it gets dark I struggle to find a camping spot. The winds would simply blow my tent away. After 30 minutes of searching, I find a cell phone tower that has a brick wall around and put my sleeping bag behind it for shelter.
