... we discussed changing our plans and returning north. Jim was concerned that the extra elevation would be too much and I sympathised with that view, especially as my nights were becoming more and more difficult, but after our effort in reaching Uyuni I was reluctant to give up.
So we decided to consult an upmarket agency, Fremen Travel, to see what they offered. As I said, around the Salar there is little accommodation and it is very poor, the exception being a group ...
... much wine the night before in prep for a midnight star gazing tour in the desert. We got to look through 10 different super powerful telescopes at all sorts of cool stuff, like stars forming, stars dying, far off galaxies that are orbiting our own Milky Way and huge star clusters like the seven sisters, sadly no planets or the Milky Way, sob!

They would get high on their local medicine and then draw or carve the visions they had onto the rocks. This was an interesting stop, and we saw what appeared to be alien type figures on some of the rocks – something which the locals believe supports proof that these ancient ...
