Atacama, Chile

Hola mis amigos!

I received this beautiful postcard from Sabrina in Chile ♥ I have received a card from her already and I always love getting mail from Chile, as I have already been there and loved it!

The Atacama Desert is a plateau in South America, covering a 1,000-kilometre strip of land on the Pacific coast, west of the Andes mountains. It is the driest non-polar desert in the world. According to estimates the Atacama Desert proper occupies 105,000 square kilometres , or 128,000 square kilometres  if the barren lower slopes of the Andes are included. Most of the desert is composed of stony terrain, salt lakes (salares), sand, and felsic lava that flows towards the Andes.

On the card you can read the slogan “donde florece el desierto” that means something along “where the desert blooms”.

Did you know?

Divorce in Chile was legalized only in 2005, and the country has one of the lowest divorce rates globally.

I send love!

  1. Beautiful! Hello from Montreal, Canada. 🙂

  2. Hace poco habían circulado unas fotos muy parecidas a las de la postal, el desierto casi cubierto por un manto rosa, debido al incremento de las lluvias por la corriente de El Niño. ¡Qué hermoso espectáculo!
    Y con respecto a ayunar y desayunar, bien, tampoco me había dado cuenta! xD
