It was during our break in San Pedro de Atacama that we discovered Teeny had a back tyre puncture. First one of the trip. Lucky it was there because our glue in the puncture repair kit had burst somewhere along the road, and we needed to replace it. That evening we discovered what an earthquake really feels like. The ground beneath us swayed back and forth as did the trees around us for at least 3min. We found out in the morning that the earthquake epicentre was about 500km away from us and registered 8.3 on the Richter scale, a 2m tsunami had hit the coastal town of Iquique and many people had been evacuated.
|First flat of the trip|
|Some adjustments for the altitude|
We arrived in Cachi and loved the tranquillity of the town with the greenest plaza we’ve seen to date. A hearty meal and off to bed to continue on Ruta 40 the next day to Cafayate.
