Day in key statistics
1rst day - of the feared travelers belly. It was not to bad, just to be sure to be in reasonable range of sanitary.
therefore ... less than 1 km - in motion, no driving, just minimum of walking
Highlights of the day
Early morning: Getting the First Aid bag from the car at 7.36, first peaks on the wonderful mirror of a wet Salar de Uyuni.
Throughout the day: Feeling only 'so-so', it's very comforting to stay at a cozy hotel room and hotel with all facilities- firewood heated public seating areas we really appreciated, as change of 'scenery' from our hotel room.
Spectacular ending of the day: A literal highlight of the day this time. Highlights- as we saw again so many thunder lights illuminating the sky above Salar de Uyuni.
There was a strike in Uyuni, blocking the major roads. The protest against the municipality was amongst others to get better drainage systems in place.
Due to the blocked roads, at 7.30 am we got a What's App, 9.00 am departure will not be possible. Maybe around 11 am.... Oh well, let's reschedule for tomorrow
