The first night in Uyuni I fell asleep easily but woke up at 5am and found that I could not get back to sleep even though I was still tired. The second night I awoke at 3am with the same result.

We organised a tour of the mines, which ended up being only the two of us and seven mining blokes. We boarded a minibus that drove us (and the blokes) to ...
... in the beautiful Chilean night sky. It was so clear and you could see so much, including the Southern Cross which is not visible in Northern hemisphere skies.
Perhaps most impressive was seeing Saturn through this telescope where you could easily make out its rings and moons – that is how powerful it was. It was truly something we enjoyed and has peaked our interest in astronomy as a result. We of course also watched the lunar eclipse occur at around 11pm. ...
