We left San Pedro de Atacama early on Monday morning to take Jeep across the Salar de Uyuni and finally after 2.5 days arrived in Uyuni, Bolivia. We were 6 people on the jeep, a couple from Brazil and a couple from Sweden and Lisi and I. Our driver was Bolivian and very quiet, almost shy. He was a very good driver though because the road (if you can call it a road) was very difficult as it was mainly desert and hills or mountains with a lot of stony roads...The landscape once more was absolutely stunning, we saw a lot of lakes eg. Laguna Verde, Laguna Colorado (see pictures) and some animals like Vicunas, Flamingos, Lamas etc. The first night we stayed in a very basic accommodation, all 6 in one room and no running water....the food they prepared for us was very nice but the night itself was freezing cold. We got up at 6.30am the next morning and had a day of 9h sitting the jeep...that was not only exhausting for the driver but also for us...we stopped at a lot of beautiful places and finally arrived at our 2nd accommodation which was a hostel build of salt blocks. That was quite interesting and they also had a hot shower - that was like haven! Unfortunately, our driver got so drunk that evening that we had doubts about our journey the next day...he even damaged a big water tank in front of the house with his jeep and the car itself got some damage as well. We agreed that we will get up at 4.30am to leave by 5am and to see the sunrise over the salt flat. Of course, our driver was not up at the time and we nearly missed our sunrise! We were also worried that he falls asleep whilst driving, he was very tired and still drunk I guess (or hangover anyway) and his head always fell down on the stirring wheel...that journey was not relaxing for us at all but after visiting the Isla de Pescados, an Island with lots of cactus and beautiful views over the salt flat we arrived save in Uyuni. Uyuni was very different to any other place in Chile or Argentina, maybe because it is in Bolivia? Anyway, Lisi and I straight away liked the people and everything we saw from their culutre. No doubt that is only the beginning of what we will see. The day after we left Uyuni and spent 6h on the bus to Potosi. A horrible bus ride as the tour company overbooked the seats in the bus and I had to sit on the floor of the bus for about 2h. Not a big problem but annoying. The road itself was just very stony and we went up and downhill all the time. the temperature in the bus must have been about 40C, we were glad to get off after 6h! Now we are in Potosi which we like as well and exploring the cultural side of the city. We have decided not to go to the silver mines as we have heard some horrible storys about that tour and the workers in there just had a strike last week and killed 13 people. We do not want to get involved in anything unnecessarily. We do not know yet when we will leave Potosi but we kind of know that we will go to Sucre next...
