    It never rains in the Atacama Desert... ever .... so really didnt need a tent at all. But later on that tent proved woefully inadequate... I should have spent just a few dollars more for something more watertight!

    episode 20 - ten minutes long... After spending my first night camping in an abandoned saltpetre plant, I pack up and continue to head south on the PanAmerican Highway in northern Chile, covering over 500kms in the absolute desolation of the Atacama Desert, passing the 3000kms mark, a hotel called "Las Bombas", a weird rock formation called tafoni, a shrine to an unofficial saint, the foggy coastal town of Chaņaral with its rather unusual light-house, and then spend some time looking for, and finally exploring, the fascinating archaeological site of Viņa del Cerro, where Inca-Diaguita coppersmiths reduced copper ore using an ingenious device called a huayrachina, and an Inca ushnu platform exists, in this case integral to the other buildings for use as a solar horizon calendar, and possibly human sacrifices.

    Episode 21 - eleven minutes long - Leaving Tierra Amarilla I rejoin the Pan American Highway seeing along the way huge mining machinery transport convoys, wind turbines, and cactus with red protuberances which indicates I am finally leaving the Atacama Desert. I cross Puente Juan Soldado and recount how he saved the town from pirate attacks, and how a later pirate, William Dampier, left his mark on the next town I visit, La Serena, where I explore on foot some interesting buildings before returning to the hostel to receive a distressing email.

    Episode 22 - 15 minutes long - exploring La Serena's local museum followed by a serious wheel failure (BTW all my own fault for not keeping an eye on certain things)

    episode #24, only 13 minutes long. Unfortunately it doesnt contain any road footage as my action cam wasnt working that day, but I tried to make up for it by adding computer graphics and lots of local history.
