Traveling through the north of Chile, I found a cool place to stay for a couple of months: San Pedro de Atacama. San Pedro is located in the middle of the Atacama Desert, the most arid desert in the world. With no more than three thousand local population, which increases to six thousand with foreign workers and tourists, this old Atacamenian village mixes five star hotels with small backpackers, trekking excursions, volcano climbing and trucks, with which to cross the amazing alti-planic landscape, looking for archaeological pre-Inca locations and geological formations that give us astonishing colors and unique formations.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
