I follow a lovely coastal road with zero traffic in the morning. It goes up and down all the time but there is less wind than the last days. At noon I reach the Chilean border and face a pretty bureaucracy border crossing that takes more than half an hour. Once across I have to enter the town of Arica to get money, sim card and food. I set off again into the desert and find a lovely spot. I saw a scorpion just a bit before but still can’t resist the temptation to sleep outside under the desert sky, it’s incredible.
