Machuca Village, Atacama

In the foothills of the Andes and in the desert region of the Atacama in Chile living is not easy. The villagers who live here survive mostly by farming llamas and alpacas, who seem to find enough to eat in the sparse vegetation. Craft products such as knitwear of llama and alpaca wool for tourists supplement their income.
