A dot in the desert (Un punto en el desierto)

I´ve never imagined myself living in a place like this. Currently I´m living the middle of the desert, in a oasis near the village of San Pedro de Atacama.
By a few unexpected turns in my life, and mostly because I fell in love, I left my crazy and frantic life in one of the largest cities in the world (Sao Paulo, Brazil) and came to Chile.
I can´t say it is easy, but I´m actually enjoying this experience. Among the lack of a rich social life and a few cultural shocks, I ended up making a few good friends. And I´ve seemed to have finally cured my anxiety. I´ve became a much calmer person and I´m loving it.
In the last three years I´ve collected pictures and experiences that I want to share with people around the world. I hope you enjoy it.

Nunca imaginé vivir en un lugar así. Actualmente vivo en el medio del desierto, en un oasis cerca del pueblo de San Pedro de Atacama. Por algunas vueltas inesperadas de la vida, y pricipalmente porque me enamoré, dejé mi alocada vida en una de las ciudades más grandes del mundo (Sao Paulo, Brasil) y vení a Chile.
No puedo decir que ha sido fácil pero en realidad me gusta esta nueva experiencia. Entre la falta de una rica vida social y algunos choques culturales logré hacer algunos buenos amigos. Y finalmente sané mi ansiedad. Soy una persona mucho más tranquila ahora y lo estoy disfrutando.
En los últimos tres años he collecionado fotos y experiencias que quiero compartir con la gente alrededor del mundo. Espero que lo disfruten.

Allways a beautiful sunset-Lindas puestas del sol

The amazing Andes (El increíble Andes)

San Pedro de Atacama is one of the best places to enjoy the union of two major geographic attractions: the desert and the Andes. It is a perfect place for nature enthusiasts and the sportspeople (specially climbers).

El norte de Chile es uno de los mejores lugares para apreciar la unión dos fantásticos atractivos geográficos: el desierto y los Andes. Un lugar hecho sob medida para los amantes de la naturaleza y los deportistas (especialmente trekking y alpinismo).

    Fantastic colors! I never made it to San Pedro unfortunately. Do you have condors there as well?

      Hi! Thanks! There should be condors in the highlands, although I've never seen one around San Pedro.

    Great pictures! I loved my stay in San Pedro last Christmas, though I did not see much of the surroundings due to illness. Anyway I visited the Moon Valley and Death Valley with not so many tourists around.
