"The salt flats was amazing! We took so many pictures that were crazy. We took pictures of me in a can, me eating my dad and me pointing at my small daddy. My dad kissed my barbi. It was shivering cold. I put salt down my dad's pants. I slept in a salt hotel. I got a salt crytal that I took back to our house. And it was fun. The old trains were verycool. I kept saying ' all aboard to Africa' "- Sofia
After 1 night in La Paz, we took a private ride to Orouro to catch a train. The drive took almost 4 hours and I had fun with Daddy and Jen in the car and did a lot of math. We stopped for lunch "in the middle of nowhwere" and they served enormous portions of food. After our driver got a little lost in Orouro, we arrived at the train station. It was a long 8 hour train ride but I did not mind. I had my movies and my Leapster and other activities. We arrived in Uyuni at about 1000pm and stayed at a really nice hotel called Jardines de Uyuni.
been really looking forward to the salt flats as daddy showed me lots of pics that other people took while they were there. Because it is so flat, white, and nothing to see for miles, you can take really funny pictures. So we brought with us barbi dolls, small plates and forks, wine bottles, stuffed animals, and other things.
A short drive by our driver for the 2 night/3 day tour, David, and we arrived in a small village at the edge of the salt flats. I got a little lesson in making/packaging salt, bought something for my hair, and then we were off to the flats.
It was soooo much fun. We took so many pictures and I had fun jumping in the air. We stopped off at a cool salt museum and then an island in the middle of the flats that was filled with cactus. My guide put his hand in a water hole (eye) in the salt flats and pulled me out a salt crystal rock that I took home. AFter a full day we arrived at the Takya Salt Hotel. The entire hotel was made from salt...all the walls, tables, everything. Daddy had
to stop me from licking the walls.
The following morning we got up early and took a lot more pics in the flats. We played tag as well. I really had fun there as it looked so cool. The tour with "Ruta Verde" continued, but the salt flat part ended.
On the way back to Uyuni we stopped off at the train cemetary. I had a lot of fun pretending I was the driver and kept saying "all aboard to Africa" "get ready to show your passports". I wish I could have stayed there longer, but the sun was setting and it was time to get back to Jardines de Uyuni.
