Ghost town – Humberstone, Peru

This picture has been taken at Humberstone in Northern Chile. Nowadays Humberstone was built in the mid XIX during the nitrates boom. With the invention of synthetic nitrate, the city became abandoned and is now a ghost town in the middle of the desert. Walking across its abandoned streets and houses is extremely impressive and give a Wild West impression. You are expecting to see a cowboy or a desperado going out of one of the house at any time….
