After the best night's sleep I have had on this trip, I woke up in time to enjoy some breakfast. True, my day was almost ruined when the only coffee available was instant, but Traveler Brendan stepped in and sternly lectured Pamper Brendan. We all came to agreement that part of traveling is leaving home behind and stepping out of our comfort zone. Ok, so I may have exaggerated this just a bit,... Read Full Entry

I guess we didn't realize we were eating in a sheep pasture. They weren't scared of us at all.

Thank you Janie
I think the gift is mine that I am able to have so many people along on my trips with me. I love reading the comments and knowing that I may help paint a small picture of the world for them. Can't wait to catch up with you.

First, no Lola. Then Barry Manilow. Now a blue leisure suit??
Sorry....couldn't resist. Looks like you are drinking in all the color and majesty of a beautiful venue. Carry on, Sir!! Best, Dave

Good Recovery!
So glad you were able to throw off the altitude sickness, do that great hike with its amazing views and enjoy the quinoa soup. Since the trout is farmed in the polluted lake, probably best you didn't eat it anyway. Your guide, Sylvia, sounds like a gem--how nice to have her for so many days together. Enjoy Uyuni, and I'll see you soon!

Luck has been with me
Thanks Tara. I am so grateful that I was feeling better by the Sun Island hike. It was more than I had expected it to be. (of course I had no real idea what I was going to be doing.) All my tours have been nice, so I am hoping our trip Thursday will be as well. Looking forward to seeing you.

Wow, I didn't but do now.
Great catch. I didn't even catch that. I do love clouds. My high school English teacher wrote me that she sat in front of the computer and visualized walking up those steps and into the clouds.

What a View Again

What a view
There's something about the colours and mountain views that make one feel alive...clearly you are alive and well. Enjoy.

What a View Again

What a view is right
Thank you Dave, Each direction I turned I found a new and even more beautiful view. Days like this do make me feel alive and fortunate to be able to seek out views like this.

Work for water
Hi B, loving the pictures so far. What a beautiful area to vacation in. If all the hiking was downhill I may be able to keep up. That uphill stuff is just not for me. Bet if they made the guests that used too much water bring up a couple of bucket fulls they wouldn't use near as much the next time. Have a great time and keep on blogging! Ted

Going with the flow
Travel does test your flexibility when they toss instant coffee your way. Your hike sounds good. I guess I have to remind Dave to log in before sending you a message.

When he said Lola, I knew
I have gotten used to the instant coffee. Now in Santiago, there seems to be better coffee. That helps keep me going.

That sky!
Wow, such a gorgeous blue sky and those incredible clouds. Did you get much of a sunset/sunrise with the storm?

Unfortunately I didn't see either the sunrise or sunset, but certainly loved the color of the sky. What I did get to see was some incredible lightening flashes across the lake and even more when the storm crossed over to the island.
