Where I stayed
Elise slept for most of the bus ride, and I dozed here and there, but the landscape surrounding us was very different from the lush forests of Iguazu
We arrived into Tupiza tired, but happy to be in Bolivia. The hotel (not hostel) we booked at was the same price as a dorm bed in Argentina. We had a large private room with an en suite bathroom, towels, soap and cable T.V., a nice pool and courtyard, an amazing book exchange, and a free buffet breakfast with scrambled eggs, fruit, cereal, yogurt and bread. We could get used to this. We spent the next few days relaxing, reading by the pool, exploring the town and markets and booking our Salt Flats tour. Oh, and we also went on a nice 3 hour horseback ride in a beautiful canyon.
