On her 30,000km walking odyssey Lucy has now passed through the worst of the Atacama Desert, crossed into Peru and approaching the end of arid Atacama territory.

Now about 2/3 the way through South America she is at a place called Pedregal. Loosely translated that would be Foot Queen! How apt!

Lucy is wearing ArmaSkin for blister prevention on this amazing journey.
