DAILY AUDIO UPDATE
Today we traveled to the Salar de Atacama (the Atacama salt lake) and visited some small communities in the region surrounding San Pedro de Atacama, including Toconao, Socaire, and Miscanti Lagoon. Within these communities we had the opportunity to interview some amazing individuals who shared some beautiful narratives about their lives and their perspectives on education and sustainability. These individuals included a weaver named Luisa Zuleta, a sheepherder named Belarmina Plaza, and a young park ranger named Leda Plaza. Listen to the full audio update to hear more about these three women and life in this region that has not seen rain in more than five years.
