Today was pretty much a shopping day. We spent a few hours along the shopping street, searching for bargains. Lots of haggling along the way and we bought sweaters, gloves, ukelele cases and more. We bought the most stuff from a lady in a small alley far from the entrance of the street: her shop was a supplier for many others and thus the prices were the cheapest here. She gave us good discounts: B60 ($12) for a sweater, 50 for a poncho, 30 for a intricately knitted shoal, and 10 for beanies/gloves.
Also went to get super cheap and fresh grapefruit juice from this lady along the streets. Around B3 for 300ml. After that we went shopping for salt flats tours and we figured we could do with more options for the salt flats tours. Gathered enough info to find out that Uyuni tours are generally much cheaper than the ones from Tupiza.
Gonna head to the Alto Thursday market tomorrow! Apparently it's the biggest in Bolivia and sold all kinds of goods.
