Santiago

On my way home I had a quick stop in Santiago before flying home to Australia. It's a nice enough city but not very exciting. I stayed in a nice area and there were lots of restaurants and bars. Everyone would sit outside to eat and drink even though ... Read more >

It was a long haul to get here, about 24 hours on 4 different buses, but finally made it. I crashed for a night, then went to see the Brazil side of the falls first. It was overcast and rainy but still very impressive. The next day I crossed the borded ... Read more >

From La Paz I headed south to Uyuni to visit the largest salt plains in the world. This place is spectacular but at night in winter the temperature drops to below -20 degrees. The bus there was one of the worst I´ve ever taken. Cost $9 for a 13 hour ... Read more >

From Quito I flew to Lima and then to Cusco and the first thing that hits you is the altitude. I had no problem in Quito at 2850m but Cusco is nearly 3500m and I really had trouble breathing. Had headaches and did stupid things for the first few days ... Read more >
