Chile from desert to street protest

This documents the raw beauty of the Atacama desert by way of hiking, biking and horse riding through other worldly landscapes reminiscent of our Moon and planet Mars. It was hard to leave this mystical place. I was so happy to gain an extra day there courtesy of an internal airline strike. Back in Santiago for a few days to roam amongst perfectly well fed stray dogs and student street protest. In Chile, dogs are no one's dog and everyone's dog.
