Left Tupiza at 8am, starting our 4d3n Uyuni salt flats tour. Max joined us on our jeep, and we got refunded b100 each as there's now 5 of us on the car. It was no issue as the seating was the same, the cook was with the other car.

We drove on gravel paths and across some small streams, all the way upslope till the highest point of the day of 4850m. We passed by several silver mines, saw herds of llamas and rare vicuñas, canyon-like landscapes. Had pre made lunch at a small town. The drive continued after at high plateaus, passing by a deserted town called the ghost town, and a beautiful lagoon infront of mountains.

Paid park entrance of b150, and arrived at our rest place around 6pm. Dinner was served at 8. Had a good chat with fellow travellers on the tour. My insect repellant fully leaked due to the change in air pressure, causing some parts of my bag to be soiled (please remember to put these stuff in a bag next time).

The lodging is more decent than expected. Beds with blankets. Looking forward to a good day tomorrow!
