3 collapse in border incident!

Have arrived back in Chile. I am in the tourist wonderland (read dusty town) of San Pedro De Atacama, the norte grande region.

The journey from Salta, Argentina, took 10 hours. Headed over the Paso De Jama, across the salt lake decked altiplano, passing many volcanoes on the way. A totally weird, arid landscape.

The Argentinian border is at 4100 netres up. Here three of our bus passengers collasped due to the altitude, and needed oxygen to bring them back to life! They survived I am pleased to report.

Heading off tomorrow to look at multi coloured lakes, flamingos, and volcanoes.
