Uyuni Salt Flats Disappoint, Somewhat

A travel blog entry by eldonsteeves


... want to go until you get right up on them and honk the horn. Each farmer places small, what I would call pom poms, in their ears; all different colors. The colors where amazing--red, blue, green, orange, purple, yellow and pink. These little tassels blow in the wind and are so decorative. The baby llamas have a wreath of several different colors around their neck. The babies are just precious. The female llama has a baby about every two years. After ...

42. Uyuni - say cheese

The roads are dirt or gravel and you're in a 4WD however the drivers LOVE ...
