Our Visit To The Thermal Springs and Geoglyphs

Monday we returned back to the little town of Mamina, spending the night there. It is located 8,856 feet above sea level in the Atacama desert mountains, so one runs out of breath real easy just taking a small walk. It is also very famous for the thermal hot springs and mud baths. People come from all over the world to experience these mineral baths, yet the townspeople want the town to maintain its smallness. Ater our departure from this area, we traveled to see geoglyphs on the side of the mountains put there by the Indians 400 years after Christ. If there is one thing we have seen endlessly in all of our travels here in Iquique, it is miles and miles and miles of desert! We got home, and everyone was very tired and mellow, so we decided to table the games for the evening.
