    We horseback ride to the ayllus located in Séquitor, Yaye, and Checar, Atacameño social and farming communities that are also considered small oasis in the middle of the desert. Here, vegetable gardens still prevail and the Atacama construction technique using adobe and straw roofs is still seen.
