[Bus in the Atacama desert

Stop in the Atacama Desert   -   A brief rest stop in the desert.   Sunday was utilised to drive to El Salvador in the bus the group used for much of the tour in the north of Chile.

They had checked out and departed the Hotel Antofagasta at 8:40 am to drive south out of town on the Pan-American Highway before turning off for a 20 km detour for lunch at Taltal on the coast. At 2:50 pm, they returned to the highway and continued south to reach the El Salvador turn-off, just before Chanaral, at 4:45 pm. After a brief stop to refuel at Diego de Almagro they arrived in El Salvador at 6:25 pm.
