    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.

    ... so we headed to the only cafe which appeared to be open and on arrival it seemed that every tourist in the whole town was in the same place - they must have been making a killing!

    After checking in with the tour operators and wandering the town to kill time, it was finally 10:30 and we were to set off. We were introduced to our guide, Bismark, and the other people in our car. Turns out we hit gold with the people in our car as we had a really great bunch. ...

    Day 380: Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

    ... prescription sun glasses; they were either in La Paz or Coroico, two places I definitely wouldn't be returning to. I bummed a cigarette off a Brazilian guy to calm me down and then ate some nice chocolate I brought with me from Coroico and I felt ok afterwards. After the trains, we stopped in a strip of artisan shops to buy souvenirs, so I bought some cheap sunglasses because I was noticing that this was probably the brightest place I had ever been and we hadn't even ...

    ... elbow/forearm guards, very thick trousers and jackets, followed by a full helmet at this altitude just getting this gear on put me out of breath. Time to get used to the bikes (for the safety conscious we paid extra to get specialised bikes as the others were cheap brands) this trial part consisted of flying down the asphalt highway for about 9km. The next part of the ride was uphill, so we put the bikes on the van ...

    It was a tiduous overnight journey as we didn't get much sleep. The Bolivia roads were horrendous so you could imagine our journey, however, it was all worth it to arrive in the small town of Uyuni, which was our starting point for the salt flats tour. We were greeted by the owner of Quechua Connections, the company we were using for the tour and we were both so excited to see our names written on a piece of paper and being held up outside the bus. The little things that ...

    Arrived in Uyuni about 10pm, took me a good half an hour to get a taxi driver to take me to my hotel! A number of them thought it was quite funny to just drive off when I told them where I wanted to go which is extremely useful! Uyuni is the gateway to the salt flats (salar de uyuni). It took me all of two hours to book a three day trip ending in Chile, walk round the whole place and have some lunch!! So I ...
