Hola there!!
We have made it to Uyuni in Bolivia after 3 days in a 4x4 across what seem the worst roads we have ever been on & across a salt flats covered 10cms of water!!
Yes thats right.
Talk about a change in direction.
This wasnt in the brochure!!
Guess who also got altitude sickness??............Sharon!!....only joking...me!!
The worst hang over you can imagine (or headache for the Muslims!) times 10 & there is nothing you can do about it!!
Except come down.
We got to 5000 meters where it all kicked in & we were surposed to stay at about 4200 metres that night.
Couldnt do it & some of the others were feeling the effects too.
So we drove a couple more hours to get down to 3700 metres where the headache totally went away.
Crazy.
Anyway all is good now.
Probably worked out for the best as we got thru the non-existant roads (all goat dirt tracks) faster & had some amazing views.
Plenty or great photos but we can upload at present.
We are now about to head to the more civilised area of this country(?).
Photos later.
Hope all are well.
Bye for now.
Keith & Sharon
Bolivia is something else & we are lucky to find a good computer.
