We were pickd up by 4x4´s and our guide who was a bit crackers, in the morning and taken to a nearby village where we were shown how they process the salt to sell it. We were also shown a babbling pool which was full of natural iodine, which reacts with the salt to form bubbly water (scientific term).
We then drove 85km over a never ending sea of salt to an "island" which was a bit of land in the middle of the flats, where we had a slap up lunch made for us. The rest of our afternoon was spent taking crazy pictures of each other doing silly things on the salt flats, as there´s no perspective
So that day the group were attacked by dinosaurs, hugged by teddy bears and flew to infinity and beyond with Buzz Lightyear (all not literally, but that´s not what the photos will suggest).
That night we went to the "extreme fun pub" in Uyuni. It was moderately fun, but I did get a drink in a very crudely shaped vessel. I won´´t elaborate, but I´ll just let you know that the drink was called "sexy llama bitch". Enough said.
