Uyuni, largest salt lake, Bolivia. 

Friday evening, just turned dark, in this very sleepish town Uyuni. Someone singing a folk song and the streets are quiet. Another whirlwind day, again up at 5.00 am. Watched the sun rise over the largest salt water lake in the world, 10,500 sq km, 3650 meters above sea level. Visited the train “cemetery” a site with the trains which carried the minerals in 1920. Lunch in a “museum” with picnic tables, Bernardo had cooked the meal himself. Visited an island of giant cactus, panorama view of the salt lake. Visited a cavern with rock formations 20,000 years old. So many magnificent pieces of nature come together in this area. Uyuni has been on my bucket list for a few years now, never imagined it would be so so spectacular. Flying back to La Paz tonight.
