The Association La Venta is a research group that organizes and runs various geographical exploration projects with particular attention to the underground world. Such projects are carried out using a multi-disciplinary approach, developing new ideas and using new research and dissemination strategies.

baja2015In this last writing I would like to sum up what I said earlier and transmit in addition to the cold data, even emotions.

After three days of traveling we returned to Italy. Now, thousands of kilometers away in our comfortable beds, we stare mesmerized at the ceiling thinking still in disbelief that we were there. In the eyes we still have the warm colors of the desert: the bright green of the cactus, the many shades of rocks, from black to dark red to ocher, the magical glitter of quartz sands and the soft profile of granite boulders that make this landscape unique. What we can say about the thousands of stars that accompanied our nights? City residents, those rare times when looks up to the sky only perceives an opaque veil of an indefinite black; here, raise your eyes, it means infinite wonder, an explosion of lights flickering and bluish to leave gaping, petrified, speechless.

Mars, or something very similar

We just returned to the base camp of San Pedro de Atacama after four days in the salt of the Cordillera de la Sal with friends of the Commissione Grotte Eugenio Boegan (CGEB) of Trieste. The advanced camp was on the near plateau about 75 km from the small village of San Pedro, and the journey was for about 60 km on a track that cuts the arid plateau of the Llano de la Paciencia.
