Flamingos in Chile, labradors in Peru

Posted by May 7, 2010

Well it’s been a while since I’ve posted on here.  After Salta we crossed the Andes into Chile, where we visited some (not very impressive) salt flats.  Did however see beautiful flamingoes and go on a wonderful astronomy excursion.  I have now seen the rest of the Milky Way as it stretches across a deep night sky – magical.

Below are the Andean flamingoes, and some pictures from a rather complicated day of travel which started in Chile and ended in Lima, Peru, by lunchtime. And I’ve found a scanner!  Just for these pics and the Galápagos ones which follow.

In the garden of the hostel we arrived at in Lima.  It was a lovely place, but empty, possibly because they charge you to use the oven.
