It's been 20 days now, and I was surprised during the first week by how little I missed mobile internet. However, like any proper substance dependency, it's getting harder to refrain, particularly from: 1) googling random facts (ie: who invented Lent?), 2) creeping on facebook and social media (cause I REALLY want to hear you bitch about the weather...), and 3) trolling through Kijiji camera sales (while waiting for Anita to peruse yet another shoe store).
I can now truly begin to appreciate what trying to break an addiction is like. Everytime I see someone gazing zombie-like at their smartphone screen, I feel a sudden urge to break mine out and indulge in some 3G goodness. Alas, there are only so many text messages one can send before running out of things to say, and no one uses a phone to actually make phone calls anymore. That leaves me with the calculator function. And in a fit of desperation, I maaaaaay have done some random number crunching to get my fix this week. Pathetic.
Anyways, on to more photos from Chile. These were taken in the Atacama Desert.
Random Llama action.
My goal of this trip was to ride or eat a Llama.
Llama on the menu! But the restaurant was closed. Dammit, so close!
Rare Atacama desert fox
Llama on a stick. Mission accomplished!
Hiking the Valle de la Luna
Drinking Pisco Sours, waiting for sunset.
Llama meal # 2. Just for good measure.
Cute little Vicunyas!
Sandboarding! Don't fall. The sand gets EVERYWHERE.
