San Pedro de Atacama

So I went to San Pedro in the North, part of the Atacama desert, the driest in the world. After an enjoyable trip sandboarding, I didn't feel very motivated to do tours. Instead I hung out with a bunch of Chileans working in the town. I met some cool folks and traveling to Oruro, Bolivia with them for the 5th largest Carnaval in the world.
Pictured above is a skull from a San Pedro museum. Various cultures practice deforming the head. If wonder what effect that had on the way the deformed people thought?
