As hotels in the desert go....pretty good

We booked this as part of a private, bespoke tour around Uyuni, the salt flats and the surrounding desert. It was beautifully made out of big lumps of rock, as the name suggests, in a small settlement called ( we think) San Pedro de Queme. Dinner was in their lovely fairly cosy restaurant where we also had a half bottle of Bolivian wine which was very passable. We got soup, chicken then apple and yogurt (that was a bit crap). Our room had big single beds, with loads of cosy blanket, and an amazing view of the village and the desert.Breakfast was unfortunately pretty poor- sugar puffs, porridge but no hot milk or microwave access to actually cook it, teas, a yogurt each, and some more bread. There was of course no internet at all. But it was a nice hotel and we knew it would be remote with limited resources.

Salts Flats Day 1 - Brillian white Salt flats

Wow Uyuni itself is probably one of the ugliest and most boring places we have been. It pretty much solely exists to support tourism on the Salt Flats of Bolivia. It’s expensive and the
town is dusty, windblown and non-descript. There’s nothing to see in the town
and no surrounding scenery to be seen from the town. There’s 30 non-descript
restaurants and 60 pizza places of which all bar one are ...

... just for this funny photo. We then played with ideas of me and Sam both being in the pic. He lay down, pants dropped, so it looked like she was sucking him, whilst getting ****** by me. It wasn't clear, until Sam worked out that her hair was in the way, and tied it up into a bun. We were a fair distance from everyone, while we messed around with these pics, and thought that no way, would anyone have noticed. Until we get back in the car and Cedric is laughing his head off. ...

We took a 4 day tour from Tupiza to Uyuni. Well, it actually ended back in Tupiza due to the demonstrations and blocking of the town in Uyuni. There were 5 of us in total, 3 Aussies, 1 Welshman and 1 Irish girl. We all hit it off famously despite the age gap, we were old enough to be their parents. We spent 4 days touring laguna, salt pans, geysers, ruins, volcanoes and stunning scenery. The ...

... Desert, where artist Salvador Dali is said to have found inspiration for his work, and a lagoon which is usually bright green but was basically a frozen puddle when we got there. It took us six hours to make our way back to Uyuni from the middle of nowhere. But en route there was plenty to keep us entertained - from the llamas playing in the defrosting rivers to the gorgeous landscape unfolding around us. Yep, life is ...
