Only a month ago a truck has spilled his load of diesel in this pristine environment. An industrial plant isnīt too far away near the customs point - right in the natural reserve. Nature seldom wins when it is a decision between making money and protecting the environment.
There are less flamingoes around than last time when I was here
Until here the gravel roads were in an okay condition, making it possible for any robust vehicle with high clearence to pass. We have been warned of what lies ahead: No clear track, lots of traces somehow making their way through the valleys. But we are confident we will make it to the blinding white plains of worldīs biggest salt lake, salar de Uyuni.
German version will follow.
