Bolivia to Chile

Two days of mud, dirt, gravel, sand and corrugations to get to Chile, but the scenery made up for the state of the road.
At the point that the track was at its wettest a car overtook me, spraying me from head to toe. Unfortunately I didn't get my visor down quickly enough and was blinded by mud.

I got to the Bolivian border without realising it. I stopped to ask for directions and it just so happened the person I asked was the Bolivian Customs man.
The off-road riding must've been more mentally tiring than I realised. Despite having been travelling through spanish speaking countries for the last three months, for some reason when I asked the border guard if there was a hotel nearby I did so in russian.
