1. Every five to eight years it rains in the Atacama Desert in Chile, the driest desert on earth. After the rain the desert explodes with life! Flowers start to sprout everywhere, covering the desert in a carpet of colors.
    Two months later the surprising show comes to an end and the flowers dry and spread their seeds.
    The seeds may have to wait for many years before the next rain falls.
    Watch the extraordinary show of the Atacama Desert blooming.
