    ... t. This was the departure gate for the masses of backpackers who chose to embark on the their Bolivian foray via an off road experience encompassing numerous lakes and flamingos before culminating in a visit to Salar de Uyuni*, as seen on Facebook. We shared our 4 x 4 with a French trio, Tomas, Selena and Mathieu. Rach and I got on really well with them and were particularly thankful for Tomas' translating skills as our driver no habla ingles.

Time for dinner, we do seem to be eating a lot, breakfasts are always bread and jam, rarely anything else, lunch, soups and more bread and dinners a great mixture of foods.
