It feels like being on an airplane
Between Tacna in Peru and Arica in Chile, the border is in middle of the desert, 30 miles from each city. After Arica, there is 500 km of coastal desert until you get to the next town. Not surprisingly, not many people cross the border ... The problem is that I didn't have Peruvian and Chilean money so I needed a ride! The first person took me 4 km further .. Close to a police officer and he told me people go slower when they see one. Five minutes later, ... a taxi. With five people inside, he said he wouldn't accept money, but took me! For the first time during my trip they reviewed everything in my backpack when crossing the border.
