          It's been a hectic few days since we got to San Pedro! The overnight bus was awful! I barely slept at all despite taking a sleeping tablet because the roads were so twisty and bumpy and it was freezing cold. Mark thankfully managed to sleep for a few hours. The 10 hour journey turned out to be 14 hours because we got stuck at the border for 4 hours …

          And we do this for FUN????

          ... the Salar with driver/guide Marcos.. It is such a unique environment it is hard to describe. It has an area approximately 2,200 square kilometres. Millions of years ago it was under the sea. Now it is a high (3,600 metres) flat area which does not drain outwards. This means the salts and minerals which leach from the surrounding mountains are deposited on the Salar.

          ... slogging it out on a mule track. Our journey started with a stop to view the impressive volcano Licancabur, which stands at 5950m and which also forms a backdrop to the town. Our guide Marguerita told us of the importance of the volcano to the Atacamenia people, who felt the volcanoes energies, both positive and negative, directly affected there own well being. There were also stories of ceremonial sacrifices to the volcano, and evidence is found on the Bolivian side of ...

          ... the characteristic sulphur odour of Rotorua was absent from this geyser field. The early morning light created an other-worldly feel as geysers erupted sporadically around us and steam encased our cold bodies. Beautiful colours, created by thermophilic bacteria, exuded from several of the exit points. The anticipated play of light on steam as the sun rose that we'd read about didn't really happen, but it was still an amazing experience. The government of the '60s had explored ...

          ... We were all crammed into a landcruiser with our luggage piled on top and off we went.

          First stop was a train cemetery which was a fun sight to see. Following that the salt flats, which are huge – 1,000,000km2 and approximately 10m deep. You have probably seen funny photos of objects placed at various distances to create illusions due to the white, uniform and very flat landscape - we’ve attached a few of our attempts. We also visited an ...
