Ghost town cemetery – Atacama, Chile

This picture has been taken on the road from Antofagasta to San Pedro the Atacama, in the middle of the Atacama desert and only few kilometers away from Baquedano town. A lot of ghost towns, remain of the nitrate rush at the beginning of the century, border this road. Walking across the street of them is an unique and impressive experience as it seems that the people living there just vanished few days ago. Shoes, close, furniture and sometimes even corps can be found. Everything is perfectly conserved in this ultra dry environment (Atacama is the driest desert in the world where it practically never rains)
