Where I stayed
Hotel del Sal
For breakfast we went to Fish's Island, a small island in the middle of the Salt Flats that has so many cactuses and and a small collection of bird's and animals. The island is so small, we walked it in about half an hour. Then we sat down and ate sweet bread with Dulce de Leche (mmm, so good!)
After the island, we started driving towards Uyuni and stopped once at a Salt Museum
Then we drove through Uyuni to the Train Graveyard. It seems to not only be a graveyard for trains, but of every other type of garbage you can imagine. The trains were really cool, but these people don't know what to do with their trash so they literally throw it on the ground and wait for it to blow away. Some of them will simply try to burn it! Bolivia seems to be a huge land fill with trash in every direction and it's really sad because it's such an interesting country!
And the last fun piece of our trip was that Sarah got maggots in her potatoes! So now we are Team Extreme ready for our next adventure!
