TravelPod Member ReviewsLa Petite Porte Uyuni
We stepped through the tiny door into this lovely French run place. Christophe the owner was very personable and friendly. Our room was warm, the beds were comfy, the bathroom was beautifully tiled with ample scalding water. No internet to speak of but we are in Uyuni so this is to be expected. e had a horrid early flight so Christophe offered to make us a takeaway breakfast, which turned out to be excellent egg and bacon sandwiches, yogurt and nice juice, and some biscuits. Would definitely recommend this place. Just on the edge of town and quiet.

I cannot think of a country where the amulgamation of ...

In Uyuni, we grabbed some drinks with the other Australians that we had met on the short tour while watching a football game in a warm restaurant, before braving the cold with a street-pizza and boarding our bus back to La Paz. We were slightly more prepared this time - wearing everything we owned - but still bloody cold!
... in La Paz.....suckers'. Our salt flat tour starts tomorrow, the food is nothing worth mentioning in town, so no report there, we head home to bed in a room with a heater that keeps putting out sparks from the powerpoint...scary ****...better turn that off tonight and freeze to death instead...the desert is bloody cold! 23 June 2014 A 10am start moves to an 11am start after our original (no English speaking guide) sadly has a family ...
... front, as 2 at the back, 3 in the middle. As my Spanish is best it made sense anyway as I did the translations – Miguel the driver didn’t speak English and in fact didn’t volunteer much info at all, but did respond with good info when I asked questions.
While waiting for dinner to cook, we headed back onto the salt for some stargazing, though no insight was provided by Miguel – as usual just sat ...
