Onto Part 15 of the Salar De Uyuni tour in Bolivia…The rocky terrain continued as the sun rose over south western Bolivia and I had perked up a bit.

Salar De Uyuni Tour Part 16: Chile Border at Hito Cajon

Chile is an odd country in my travel repertoire in that I have officially been there three times (or on three separate occasions) yet I have yet to do anything there!

Laguna Colorada, Bolivia, 2010

Salar De Uyuni Tour – Part 12 – Laguna Colorada

Sounds like it should be in the USA. But only for those who refuse to use basic language translation. Laguna Colorada, of course just means “Lake Colour Red” in English. Obvious, especially given the red tint of this naturally picturesque highland lake. This Laguna was a highlight from the Salar de Uyuni jeep trip in Read more about Salar De Uyuni Tour – Part 12 – Laguna Colorada[…]

Jumping for joy somewhere on the Salar De Uyuni Tour – in the deserts of South Western Bolivia. A moment to savour and freedom. This tour was one of the most spectacular I have been on, scenery wise.

Salar De Uyuni Tour – Part 10 – Laguna Canapa y Flamencos *

After a hat-trick of special sights (Gorilla Mountain, Active Volcano and Train Track) on the second morning of the tour, our jeep took us down to the spectacular Laguna Canapa. And I mean spectacular. Situated at a high altitude, this lake is tinted slightly naturally green, good then that the photos don’t show that, and Read more about Salar De Uyuni Tour – Part 10 – Laguna Canapa y Flamencos *[…]
