As I said, we started the day extremely early, 4 am.  The reason for this was to arrive at the actual salt lakes for sunrise.  It was totally worth it!  They are amazing.  I cant describe how immense they are.  Cant think of a better way to start your birthday.
We then went to a kind of island in the middle, covered in catuses, and walked to the top while our brakfast was being made.  Exhausting, so noticable we were at altitude of 3800m.
So we felt we desreved our breakfast of scrambled eggs.
We then spent the next few hours in the middle of the salt lakes.  Taking silly photos, playing cards, doing poi, and alsoi having tequila slammers, using the salt we were actually sitting on.  Oh, and the boys also went for a run across the salt lake stripping of their ponchos and running round completey naked!  Was very funny!
Really was an amazing way to spend your birthday.  We then went to a little town and had luch before heading back to Uyuni.  We were all all shattered so had a nap.
Then in the evening we went for a drink and then for dinner, where Freddie announced that his birthday present from his parents was money to go out for a nice meal.  Well we were in Bolivia so the money actually meant we all had huge dinner of pizza, and then went to the cactus bar and drank all night, and didnt pay a penny!  Was definetely the best birthday I have ever had.
Thankyou for all the birthday messages, was nice to hear from you all!
So that was my 23rd birthday.
