Europese emissie norm nekt, ANWB redt

A travel blog entry by dattatreya


Zondag vertrekken wij uit Potosi richting Uyuni. De weg loopt over de hoogvlakte op bijna 4000m door een bijna volstrekt kaal en onherbergzaam maanlandschap. Het enige dat wij tegenkomen zijn Lama's en hier en daar een verweerde boerderij. Het lijkt ons verschrikkelijk zwaar in primitieve omstandigheden te moeten leven op deze hoogte met de kou en …
