As we left Cachi, we needed to make a decision. We had no hotel reserved for the night, and our subsequent night stop was in Purmamarca - roughly 500 KM north near the Bolivian border, and many of the roads were still dirt and gravel. We could either drive as far as we felt like and try to find a hotel with two rooms, or we could call and try to reserve our condo in Purmamarca for one more night and just go for the long drive. We decided upon the ...

We spent about twenty minutes in Purmamarca - we deemed twenty minutes adequate given it was a pleasant but very touristy, very expensive town - and then began the descent back to our main route. Here the same dog barked at us, but this time it ran out into the road, where Matt passed it, before it bit Nadine on the calf. As we were putting iodine on the wound, a pickup truck full of about seven people stopped to see if ...

It made me think that if you thought the Earth was flat, you might make it to this ...
... to reach the Salinas Grandes. It was definitely a windy, steep road. The ascent was incredible...sharp turns straight up onto the altiplano before a brief descent to the salinas. The road was surprisingly easy, despite the beds...very wide and the drop off was about 5 feet away from the edge of the road, so I didn't have that constant fear of falling off.
