Potosí to Uyuni

Written on: Saturday August 4th, 2007

A journal entry from: Bolivia, Peru, and the Galapagos!

Today we took a 6 hour bus ride to Uyuni (I think it is pronounced You-nee) on a dirt road in a private bus (we paid an extra $5 each in order to avoid a public bus). The scenery was fabulous! The only downside was that the bus was not heated and I was sitting on the shady side and froze for most of the trip. The people on the sunny side were roasting so they had the windows open. As a result, we were breathing dust the whole time. Also, there was no bathroom on the bus, so we made frequent stops to go pee in the bushes. Boys went to one side of the road and girls to the other. I was super thankful at this point that I had bought several travel size rolls of Charmin toilet paper!
