Salar Uyuni

Breathtaking..really!

We just did one day as time is very short, so we didnt see the red lagoon or the flamingos.

started with a short visit to the "cemeterio del tren", where all the old industrial trains ended up. Felt like a wee boy again crawling and exploring. Great sepia flicks as well.

photos uploaded soon on the msn spaces site.

blasted from there in our 4 wheel drive across to the isla incahuasi, which was as sublime as it was surreal.

in the middle of a alt desert, where the tiny surface water reflects the sky in a disorientating way, you run into an island covered in cacti upto 12m tall and 1200 years old (they grow about 1mm pa)

back to uyuni after some fun photos, to be confronted the next day witha boneshaking 8 hour journey to Tupiza along a dry riverbed.

Very cheap night in tupiza, then 2 hours to the argentinian border. Change of bus, nice sunrise (bus was at 4am :)) then further 8 hours to salta, Argentina.
