The salt flats were the most incredible views i`ve ever seen in my life.
Saw some coloured lakes and pink flamingos.
More coloured lakes and flamingos.
My birthday! celebrated in both Bolivia and Chile. Were taken to a hut on the outskirts for a local party. A band was playing, panpipes, guitar etc. Lots of salsa with the locals. A good night! We had to stop the music etc when the police came near then it carried on again!
Drove back to San Pedro.
Started the day on the beach (got a bit sunburnt), made some phonecalls then we prepared a christmas feast of pigs in blankets, yorkshire puds, potato salad and plenty of mojitos. We went clubbing in the evening.
Got up early (with a hangover) and drove back to San Pedro. Stopped off at a very flashy shopping centre on the way back.
Stu and Mirte got a lift to Salta in the morning, Chilled out in the sun, had a siesta. It`s a hard life.
Hired bikes and rode to a ruined fortress, known as the fortress of heads because at some point 300 people were beheaded and hung around the turrets.
