FEB 4, 2016 – Given my limited time in Bolivia, I decided to take a plane from La Paz to Uyuni. Already from the sky, I saw how big and empty the area is: The Uyuni salt flat is a quarter the size of Switzerland. After a night in the little desert city, I joined a day tour in a jeep. Luckily there was some water in the Salar, so we were able to see reflections and other nice visual effects. Also the dry part was fascinating, though, with its hexagonal structure. The same evening, I took a bus to Potosí, a city famous for its silver mines.
