Flowers are blooming in this normally barren desert
Location: Atacama Desert, Chile
It's a rare sight that happens naturally every five to seven years
"Beautiful, it's amazing how such a beautiful spectacle
happens in a very dry place, and with sand."
A pilot project to artificially plant flowers
would make blossoming a regular event
But some think this may have negative effects
"If they (authorities) intend on interfering
then the natural phenomenon will be lost,
it won't be a desert blooming anymore."
Atacama is a big draw for tourists
with parks, beaches and mountain landscapes
