Hey guys. What an awesome trip. Looking forward to following you guys around via this blog. One suggestion... for way down the road: spend at least a month in Turkey... and I dont think you will need a month for Laos. And just a question, but are you really carrying all those books with you???

Salt Flats of Uyuni - Day 4

From the Trip: Kevin and Julie's RTW

Journal Entry Highlight

From: Laura

Oh what memories! I still can't get the song "Crazy people, crazy music' out of my head - and now neither can you!!!! To fill you in on my trip back to La Paz, the short version, we waited at the border with Chile because he was trying to pick up extra passengers to return to Uyuni. He managed to get one, a nice travel agent from La Paz, but it meant I couldn't lie down on the comfy seat, so I climbed in the back. You are right, it's much bouncier there. We soon came back to another hot lake, one we had passed earlier that morning and he had asked us if we wanted to stop and we said No. Well, he asked me again, I said No - keep going - and so we stopped. Driver and girlfriend and nice travel agent all got into the hot springs and stayed there for about 45 minutes, but before they went he turned up the Bony M real loud! I sat and sulked and turned the music off. I tried the cat trick of willing them to come out by staring at them but nothing worked. In their own time we got back in the car and set off again. We passed lots of broken down jeeps along the way and each time the driver stopped to offer help, 'How nice' I thought. But the first time he could help by giving someone a spare Jack we had, I realised he was charging money for it! He also managed to pick up 2 more people and took them back to Uyuni so we were 4 in the back again, and he wasn't cheap. I can't remember exactly how much but I do remember thinking it was a lot of money! The travel agent tried to help me by saying he would come to the bus station with me to make sure I got a ticket that night but the driver said it would not be necessary and had all been arranged - yeah, right! We dropped the nice travel agent off and the driver drove me back to his agent. When I asked about the bus station, he just said, "No, agent" so I just sat there in the office, regaling all their future customers with tales of our journey until someone came to try to shut me up. They took me back across Uyuni to my original agent who said she had been so worried about me that she kept asking the other agent what had happened to me and they said nothing. So of course she hadn't changed my bus ticket back to La Paz. She said that all the buses were full until saturday night, this was Thursday morning, and I said that wasn't good enough as I was flying back to NZ on Sunday morning. Anyway, she really didn't want me to tell the agent in La pAz about the trip and I said I wouldn't complain, I wouldn't ask for money back - JUST GET ME ON A BUS TONIGHT. Eventaully, she got me a ticket on a public bus, no reclining seats here, no movie, no dinner and get tucked up in a blanket. Instead, i was in the driver's mate's chair. You know the one, the tiny one, 4 inches from the windscreen with no arm rests let alone a back rest. So yes, I sat there for 12 hours, I got knocked every time someone got on or off the bus, I fell off if I moved an inch either side, and for about the last 6 hours I had an old woman chewing coca leaves in my ear, the smell jsut made me feel sick. Anyway, I got back to La Paz in time to catch my flight, but I did break my promise and complained to the agent in La Paz. I thought that was the least I could do after that journey back. I bumped into some other people who had been at the wedding I went to before Uyuni , they had been to Uyuni and been delayed by 2 days and missed their flight back to New Zealand and were told there wasn't another until FEB 24!!!! I felt quite a bit better after that Love the photos Laura (Humphrey)
