Saturday 5 July: today we drove from Potosi to Uyuni where the world's largest salt flats are, and at an altitude of 3700m above sea level. Uyuni also holds the remains of the most important railway machinery dating back to 1890, now known as the Train Cemetery. We made several spots along the way to take photos and had an early lunch in the …

The next day we were up early and loaded into jeeps to head out on the flats. We stopped off en route for a tour of the processing and packaging …

Good breakfast for 50 Bolivianos at the hotel.
At 10.15, left in 4x4s for the Salar de Uyuni, one of the largest salt-flats in the world. Drove on sandy, dusty tracks before reaching the Salar.]

Dry, sunny and warm but cold at night.
Left Potosi and drove for 4 hours through increasingly dry canyons with semi-desert in places from the sandstone rock. Saw cacti, llama, alpaca and sheep.
Coloured, folded mountains with highest point over 4000 metres.
Eventually, saw the Salar de Uyuni in the distance.
Played Beatles on my …

Post Oruro Protest: Garbage Dump & no Potosi

As a result of our seven hour delay at Oruro, we ended up driving until 10pm to make up for lost time. It also meant that we were unable to complete the full drive distance to Potosi that night so we had to pull over and 'bush camp'. You don't always get a full sense of a place when you are tired and it's pitch black. So it wasn't until the morning …

    The bedroom in the annex was cold, but it had a heater and excellent hot shower. Good foyer with heaters and WiFi. Excellent pizzas and breakfast at the Minuteman Pizza in the hotel.

    The hotel was lovely, the rooms are expensive however we had hot water, something we knew we wouldn´t experience for a while and a fantastic breakfast at Minuteman pizzeria, inside the hotel. The only negative was wifi was super slow.

    Minuteman is the best food in Uyuni, and the rooms are warm and comfortable. Just be careful with the electric showers!

    We stayed here as part of a tour and the hotel is alright. Our room was dark and the heat didn't really work. The hot water is hit or miss, we never had any problem with it but some people did. The courtyard and the different lounge areas was nice. The breakfast was expensive but the dinner was great! Really good pizzas!
    Walking around the town and seeing what else was available, this is one of the better option.
