Flag of Bolivia  ,
Monday, February 22, 2010

Only once you will see "the one picture", you ll fully understand what I mean :  )
 
Left San Pedro (Chile) for a 3 days tour that would take me across the Bolivian border and to Uyuni, the largest salt lake in the world (Salt Lake City is n.2 and Atacama in Chile n. 3).
Together with another 4 guys (from Switzerland and Korea) we were driven across amazing landscapes over 3 days and got to sleep in the salt hotel in San Jose.

Bolivia is the poorest latin american countries, yet it is one of the most interesting ones.
People are very nice and the country offers amazing views, dangerous roads and drivers and the mines....
You will easily get altitude sick as the lagoons are at 4,500 meters, so you ll either get headaches from the pressure, struggle to breath from the lack of air from the same phenomenon (bottles of still water sound like sparkling ones when you open them while going up the mountains) or stomach ache. Great!

After the mines in Potosi, I got on a bus and got to La Paz this morning.
