Newest public transport in La Paz- the teleferico- covers the city from one top of the mountain to the other. Impressive!

Although the view is beautiful, the air is so thin that it is hard to go up the stairs and breathe. But it is worse in the city where the fumes replace the oxygen. I got out as soon as I could.

La Paz city life on a holiday

SALAR DE UYUNI -Day 1

And we’re off, starting with the train cemetery. It will be a 3 days, 2 nights journey in some of the driest and highest places I have ever been in, sleeping on the third night at 4600 meters altitude. Needless to say I didn’t sleep much, and for the first time in the trip suffered from altitude sickness. In the morning the driver gave me a local concoction with some herbs and coca leaves and I felt better.

Immensity of the salt desert, nothing grows, we tasted it, pure salt.
