Desert Scene

We spent our first night in Calama, of which I do not have any pictures. This is a fairly large mining town with lots of service companies and housing for miners. For me, it was notable for the dogs. In most of Chile the dogs were pretty benign. However, in Calama they were more aggressive, several times barking and growling as I walked by. Also, at night they made a lot of noise barking at each other. This is a scene driving out of Calama.
