Camping at Pastos ChicosDecember 5, 2017 in Argentina ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C
After dinner, we drove back 3 kms to Pastos Chicos since we couldn't find any convenient place to camp near Susques. We prepared the van for sleeping and were off to bed by 11:30 pm but not before taking some pictures of the amazing star filled sky. We were really in the middle of nowhere and the only light was from the restaurant and the fuel pump. The sky was like a blanket of glittering dots everywhere. We could even spot some galaxies and star clusters. It was truly magical. The altitude and the clear sky made it extremely beautiful and us sleeping in the van with a direct view of the skies was like sleeping under the stars. It reminded me of my childhood when we used to sleep outside under the stars except that here it was many many more of them.
It was a bit windy and abouts 10C when we slept but it got quite cold in the late night/early morning. My guess would be around 0 C inside the van. We had to turn on the engine heating twice to keep us warm.
Overall, it was very comfortable in the van. The mattresses were nice and soft but firm enough to give good support. The mattresses under the head was raised slightly and was perfect for sleeping. The curtains kept the lights out from in front and behind.Read more
