We left Mendoza in Argentina for a 6-hour bus journey to Chile's capital Santiago crossing over the Andes, and an extensive security check carried out by the chilian boarder force strictly no drugs, Firearms or banana's
Didn't stay long in Santiago as you pay European prices for a hostel.
We made our escape to Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso which is on the coast.
Found a perfect hostel in the hippy town of Valparaiso where we stayed for a couple of weeks enjoying the culture, locals and the impressive artwork painted throughout the city.
We moved to one place called Concon which had skyscrapers built on dunes.
There was then an incredibly long journey to the Chilean border to enter Bolivia
It was time to get on a mountain bike in 40 Degrees heat and cycle about the canyons
The last bus of chile broke down and got us to the Bolivian Boarder Luckily we had the fantastic TinTin to direct us to the salt.
