Early wake up call, 4:30, since today the highlight of the atacama desert, which is actually not in the desert, is on the agenda: El Tatio geysers. The tour starts bumpy, four guest, a guide, and the driver in one vehicle, as everyday. We're asked to sleep for the first hour, since it's dark anyway.
Slobodan hates the bumpy ride. The road is really muddy, washed away from floods of water during the last rain, a few days ago, some diversions are inevitable. Two times, I thought the car would get stuck in the floods of water around us, but the driver managed, and we also didn't really feel asleep. After 2 hours driving, horrible for slobodan, we arrive at the geysers. The sun just tries to get over the mountains, which are >6000m high here, since we're on 4300m now, it's quite windy, very cold, and we see in the distance some smoke like silhouettes appearing from the ground.
