5 thousand-star hotel

During the last Dakar Rally, as we crossed the Andes, we arrived in the Chilean city of San Pedro de Atacama around 3 am. After about half an hour knocking on the door of all the hotels and inns that are near each other, we were sure they were all booked. The solution was to follow the trail and get some place to sleep on the sands of the Atacama. As our car had racing seats, not reclinable or comfortable, we decided to stretch the sleeping bags beside the vehicle and rest where they fell. Great idea; we do not have frequent opportunities to admire a sky like this, with no interfering light.
