San Pedro de Atacama, Chile, December 10, 2017
Happy 80th Birthday to my Mom-
Our first stop was in a cavern a de sal. Good thing we kept our helmets on because we wacked our heads often-
Biking along the way: duna mayor-
The rock formations are very interesting-
You can see the volcano in the background and Richard speeding away-
How can you make this mistake?
Glad this didn't happen to me-
We were gone about 5 hours and so we were very ready for a beer when we got back. Actually, I don't get the t-shirt "I finished the Valle de la Luna" bike ride because during the last few kilometers, we were walking because our butts were sore and when we got to the last corner about half a mile from town, a van was waiting and 2 women offered us rides. I got in, thinking I've been looking for you since I started this trip! Later I was wondering if I would be kidnapped, robbed and a huge ransom asked for me but no, they were just two friendly Chileans.
We ended up at a restaurant in the plaza and had to order food if we wanted to drink. There's only one bar in town where you can drink without eating. So, we ordered a salad to split, except I didn't think we were splitting it 3 ways-
