We biked through the mountains of Peru, crossing into Bolivia on
the shores of Lake Titicaca. Once in Chile, the biting rain and winds of the
"bolivian winter" drove us to seek out warmth and sunshine on the Chilean coast.
After three warm weeks of busing, biking, surfing, and eating
down the coast and through the Atacama Desert,
the growing threat
of COVID-19 brought our trip to an abrupt halt in Valparaíso, Chile.
