Day 1: Laguna Blanca (White Lagoon), Laguna Verde (Green Lagoon), thermal springs, geysers and Laguna Colorada (Coloured Lagoon). We saw pink and white flamingos at the Laguna Colorada. The lagoons are all differnent colours due to the minerals and algee that are present. In the evening everyone suffered from altitude sickness as we were over 4000 meters above sea level
Day 2: The "Rock Tree" a rock that looks like a tree (see photos), the "Coloured mountains", "Rock Valley" and Laguna Negra (Black Lagoon). We saw a desert hare and a desert fox along the way. We moved to a lower altitude in the evening so most of us felt better.
Day 3: The "Train Cemetary" and the finally the "Salir de Uyuni". That evening Jamie left us to go on to La Paz, the capital of Bolivia as he needed to see a dentist. He`s also meeting Jamie (girl) who´s coming out this Friday. We took a bus to Tupiza, the "Wild West" of Bolivia.
The whole trip was amazing, no words can describe it. Please see the photos!
