On Day Two we bundled a pasty, fragile Oliver into the jeep and continued our tour. The night before was cold, Bolivia is so cold, but punctuated with delicious traditional food from Carla, our tour and cook. She spoiled us and I ate Oliver’s portions because I’m that kind of girlfriend.
It’s bad that I don’t really know the names of the places we went to. I know it was a national park, near the Salt Flats, I know it was Bolivia. The first day was all climbing and increasing altitude, mountains, snow, bricks. Day Two was deserts, different colored lakes, geysers and flamingoes. Flamingos?
Every couple of hours we were in new spectacular scenery. Bolivia had incredible landscapes, miles and miles of untouched beauty. It was a total revelation.
Note on our tour: We took our tour with Hostal Los Salares and Moses and Carla were our driver and cook/guide respectively. The hostel is based in Tupiza, so we took the 4 day trip from Tupiza, ending in Uyuni. Our group highly recommends this tour for the landscape, really good Bolivian food and the lovely tour staff. You can book the hostel on hostelworld.com and book the tour when you arrive.
