In Calama, Chile

I'm in Calama, Chile right now. I made it to San Pedro de Atacama this morning after crossing the border into Chile.

My trip through Salar de Uyuni was awesome. The trip report is coming next.

I just slept through a 2 hour bus ride because I was a bit tired from having waken up this morning at 5am. We slept in a place that had no electricity at that time, so we were all packing while wearing our headlamps. It was the earliest I've ever been awake in my life without power, I'm pretty sure of that.

I'm taking a bus in 20 minutes to Arica, Chile. From there I will look for another bus to cross the border into Peru and get to Cuzco for the second time to see Machu Picchu. This bus ride to Arica will be about 8 hours long and an overnight.

I had to say bye to Charlotte earlier when I left San Pedro. I was sad again, like usual. I'll see her again though, when I visit Montreal on a big Canadian road trip or maybe she'll find herself in Los Angeles someday in the near future.

I sat next to some ass on the previous bus ride just now. I happened to accidentally lean on him while falling asleep and he pushed me off him with a thrust like I was purposely invading his space. What a jerk.

I think you know Karma.
How you sit with him together in the bus, in that land, in that time.
Don't hate him. You have good reason to meet him there.
