The Salt Flats

Wow there are a lot of people here and judging by their traditional attire of yellow sunglasses and trucker caps I don't think this is the indigenous population.

We're in Uyuni, Bolivia, home to the spectacular Salt Flats.

Being a grumpy old bastard, here my patience was tried with young English knobhead after young English knobhead cruising past us laughing over-loudly and mocking something or someone.

I suppose we're all here for the same reason. Who am I to judge. We're all jumping on a jeep tomorrow to see the salt flats and that's the only reason we're here.

Despite the focus on tourism, there are a heck of a lot of Bolivians just living their everyday lives here and it's a great intro to the huge differences from Argentina.

The Salt falts were mind-blowing as to be expected.

No matter how many other people around, driving through this amazing places was incredible. In fact it bordered on spiritual. The World just keeps on giving.

I'll let the photos talk now.

Let's play beach or crazy salt flat in Bolivia...

How come the rest of the 10,000 people who visit the salt flats find this perspective malarky easy. And we're supposed to be creative
