Hitchhiking up through Chile

Together with Claire I traveled the 2000km between Santiago and Arica relying only on my thumb and the goodwill of passing truckers driving north. These are a few snapshot from the journey, first from Iquique, then from the Pan American highway and then from Arequipa in Peru.

The by far best driver we had along the way. Talkative, friendly and buena onda. He drove us from Pozo Almonte near Iquique the last 250km to Arica.
The view of the Pan-American highway on an unpaved stretch from the window of a truck.

My favorite south american soft drink by far. Beats Inka Cola with a margin.
