The Worlds largest salt flats









Butch Casidy and the Sundance Kid were killed in the near by village of San Vincente in 1908. It seems to be a common theme in Bolivia to turn places were people have been killed into a tourist attraction. You can also go to valleygrande were Che Guevara had his last stand. Joakim mentioned as we noticed that my door was not shut properly going around a bend on a mountain road, that he wondered if I had been tragically killed on that bend , would people travell from Hull to see were it all ended for me.








 









 










I think this place was called San Antonio de Lipez? we stayed here on the first night. This is were I played my first game of football at altitude with Thomas, fellow travellers from another group and some local lads. I even scored a goal!









 I think i will wait just a bit longer









View from camp two(Huallajara). It was here Cathy and Thomas showed us some very impressive Salsa dancing.

Llama. we actually had Llama for dinner after visiting this Llama farma. I cant tell you what it tasted like as it was mixed with something spicy. Although like everything else, except chicken flavoured crisps, it probably tastes like chicken.

TOP FACT! So far I have eaten the following four foods that rhyme Llama, Pirrana, Banana and Soltana.
