Uyuni

... in the middle of the car, surrounded by big men, I felt very safe. It's hard to describe how pretty the landscape was. I'll try, but recommend seeing the photos to get a better idea of our tour. The first day included a visit to the train graveyard, a dust field full of trains from waaaay back in the day, and the famous Salina de Uyuni, an ancient ocean that dried up and left behind TONS of salt on a giant flat plain. ...

Salar de Uyuni

... but we took the obligatory snap! Then on to a Fish Island, a land mass in the middle of the salt flats covered in massive cacti, which is pretty cool. Our guide sets up lunch on tables made of salt, we even have table cloth (and a bottle of red wine)...how civilised of us in this dusty, windy nowhere place! We take our 'crazy photos' as Nefi calls them, which aren't as warped as they should be as there has been massive dust storms and ...

... One skin of brick, single glazing, corrugated iron roof with plastic skylights did not provide much protection from the -20 degrees C outside – of course, there was barely power let alone heating though we managed to scrape together some scrap wood for an hour of fire that we crammed around enjoying a few beverages – Miguel disappeared for hours with our beer in his car so had to kick up to get it ...

Blockades and Riots - Uyuni to Potosi

A travel blog entry by vclench

... with the explanation of why. You decide that as only one company is willing to sell tickets, it is highly unlikely that the blockade will be cleared by the evening. So you settle for the fact that you are going to have to spend one more night in Uyuni, and opt for a ticket for 10am tomorrow instead. Fingers crossed the blockade is short lived. Bright and early in the morning, you head down to the ticket office to get an update on the situation. The old lady in ...

Salar de Uyuni tour

... the various agencies have got their acts together. All the cars are either Lexus 450 or Toyota 4x4; basically the same car . All the cars I saw in Uyuni & on the salt flats were identical & in good condition. Guides: Each company has great guides & each company has OK guides. Unless you have a specific name to ask for you could end up with great or OK. What will make your tour is the people you are with. If you are in a group of 5/6 this is easy but if you ...

    This is one of the nicer probably slightly dearer places in Uyuni, which is a complete hell hole. I and some other guests knocked and rang on the door for about ten minutes before someone bothered to let us in. Of course, they don't take cards, and the internet did not work, which and been one of the reasons for us to choose this place. But internet does not work anywhere in Uyuni, it seems, so we can't really be too angry about that. Our room was cosy, and the bathroom had plentiful hot water and nice towels and our beds were cosy. Breakfast was not great the only cereal they seem to have is sugar puffs and porridge, which is bad if you are not provided with boiling milk or a microwave to cook it. Just toast and bananas and tea in addition, and no protein apart from the ubiquitous strawberry yogurt. My friend experienced rudeness when checking in, as the receptionist answered the phone at least twice while she was waiting to be checked in fully. I would probably recommend it, but choice in Uyuni is limited so it's one of the best of a bad bunch rather than being actually really nice.
