Flag of Peru  , Tacna,
Thursday, March 1, 2012

Yesterday we arrived in Tacna fter 23 hours on a bus from La Serena, Chile to Arica, Chile, then in  collectivo across the border. It was great to rrive and not be traveling in bus for a little bit. This seems to be  reasonably pleasant town. Much to my surprise, the most shocking part of the bus ride was not the length of the ride, but the shocking amount of nothing between the two places. La Seren is  dry arrea, on you hit dessert pretty much outside the city limits, well not immediate˝ly, but pretty close. and then there is bleak bleak dry dessert nothing for the next 23 hours. It is true some of the time it was dark, but every visable thing from La Seren to Tacna appers to be dessert. much of it the type of dessert where you cannot see one green item in the sand. Other parts had only fast expnses of dry crcked dirt, which looked like they  could have been mud onceupo a time. Overall, after our long long(1573 km) journey  yesterdy, I will be looking forwrd to seeing  few more living things in the days to come. Thisafternoon e push on the Arrquipa, another 7 hours in the bus, so we{ll see what lndscape that brings.
