Where I stayed
Hotel Tonito

Monday, April 13, 2009

Our arrival from the 4WD trip into Uyuni left us feeling quite knackered, plus the lack of any shower over the preceding days left us smelly too. A good hotel was called for, and we got it in the form of Hotel Tonito, recommended by our guide book, and a former stopping point for my brother Uttam, when he visited this region back in 2007. The hotel was a bit luxurious for Uyuni, and we immediately got ourselves a nice shower and a long snooze.

Uyuni itself was a ghost town on the Sunday (day of rest of course!); but having been here before, it usually teems with markets selling all manner of things. Closer exploration revealed that some of these were still open. We weren´t too interested in spending too much time here; it really is only a staging point for trips to the Salar, so we made plans to go upto La Paz, with the intent of making our way north to Cusco a little faster (as there´s a lot to do around there) and increase our travel options around the La Paz region.
