After visiting the Salar yesterday, I had a hard time believing that we would see anything even remotely as beautiful, but I was in for a surprise. The following two days we would drive even further into the desert to see active volcanos, colourful lagoons, unearthly nature and warm bubbling saline springs. A 970 km drive reaching a height of 5,000m across south-east Bolivia to the Chilean border was ahead of us.
A PEAK OF CHILE
But instead we drove to the Chilean border where I – this time – deliberately sneaked across it. Just for the record, this is not becoming a bad habit of mine. Samantha, our American/English crew member was moving on further south, while we were turning back towards Uyuni town in the north. We had a seven hour drive ahead of us, and on the way we did a stop at José’s favorite spot – the llama place. I get why he likes it so much. It sure is peaceful and quiet.
