You might know that Argentina and Chile is divided by the mighty Andes. In the South very rainful. In the North: Dryest place on Planet Earth. The Atacama desert.

(The local map said 5400 meters above Sea Level - 17716.5 Feet) We did see Birds ( Pink Flamingoes in Bolivia, so close we were to the frontier, at the Green Lake) and other animals that only lives in this arrid area.
