San Pedro de Atacama

By bus from Uyuni to San Pedro de Atacama with a long stop at the border.
San Pedro is a oasis in the Atacama, originaly populated by Indios, then discovered by some Hippies, today it is gentrified with the center in withe adobe buildings, shop and restaurant signs only in brown wood and no cars allowed. Around that adobe buildings and walls in brown, currogated iron you find only much further out.
It is possible to make some trips by bicycle but this can be very tyring because of the sun.
The Museo Gustavo la Paige, a small but very interesting museum has changed its location to the northern extensions of the Avenida Pedro de Valdivia in the Universidad Catholica del Norte.
