Atacama Album

On Friday November 1 we flew to Antofagasta then drove into the Atacama desert to Calama where we spent two nights. The first day we spend touring the desert, visiting San Pedro and the Flamingo reserve. The second day we visited the ALMA observatory, see the separate ALMA album. We also had a chance to view the night sky from a very dark site.
