After an afternoon, a cold evening and a morning to Potosi we hopped on a bus to Uyuni. Lonely Planet described the road as “rugged” and “spectacular”. It did in fact turn out to be both rough and scenic. We saw plenty of llamas and even more pigs.
The landscape changed quite frequently, which kept us entertained on this 5 hour trip. We passed through rocky desert, a dusty desert, red mountains, green mountains, etc. I attempted taking some pictures from the bus window, but unfortunately, few came up given the bumpiness of an unpaged road.
After getting to Uyuni we got a bus for La Paz for the following night and then went looking for a tour of the Salar. We heard from other travelers in Sucre that there was now an office that had rankings of the companies based on traveler feedback, so we went there and got a few names. After that we got some dinner – the book advised us that Uyuni has many dining options, all of which involve pizza, and that seemed largely true. It was a good pizza though.
