... to appreciate when you were getting an unsolicited exfoliate from sand and wind on your face. After about 4 sites to see stops, we made it to our first "Refugio" to sleep. It was barebones but it was just right. Our group bought some wine and local Bolivian liquor and had a ball. We spent the evening talking, laughing, getting to know each other and I loved listening to their stories of travel and adventure. The next day we set off for more sites. Thankfully ...
22 June 2014 7am...Uyuni...what dusty hell is this? We find our hotel and take a shower then head out to find some police. Pretty sure the police don't give a rats **** in Uyuni about anything and we can't get anyone to take a statement until 6pm..it is in Spanish and the guy who typed it up from my English written statement didn't have such good English language skills, so here's hoping it doesn't say something like 'stupid Gringos ...
... up by the time we made it to the flats.
Were quickly very cold and had taken all the funky photos we could think of so headed off the salt and south until yet more salt, the smaller and less impressive Salar Chiguana. From there it was SW to a sculptured rocky viewpoint of the actively smoking Volcan Ollgaue on the Chilean border and then south along a string of lakes near the border starting with one who ...
... for a couple of k, and finally
getting a taxi on the outskirts at a ridiculous price, I was absolutely
exhausted, burning in the merciless sun, lips drying out by the minute, hungry

Took the first hostel with a room and started the hunt for a
decent agency for the 3 day trip to Salar de Uyuni – first ...
Before arriving in Bolivia, you had heard stories about bus strikes and blockades being a common occurrence, roads being blocked frequently for no obvious reason, bus companies publishing timetables but either being cancelled without notice or not running on time, and passengers being told to disembark even before reaching their destination.

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.
