Q & A
What would you have changed?
The only thing that would have changed is the adaptation to acclimatize more to the altitude, in Uyuni I was not very well so I decided to include more water, due to the height and the sudden changes in climate, very sunny day and very cold night. I recommend acclimatizing first.
Anything go wrong during the trip?
The bus from Villazon to Uyuni was something adrenaline-fueled since the buses are old and in a part of gravel road with rising rain the engine was turned off and we turned off, until we took the clean and jerk and were able to go up and continue the journey.
How was the food?
Carrott Tree in La Paz. I recommend the markets and on the street the local preparation is tasty. Don't freak out if they serve them juice in a bag.
What tips would you give a friend?
I recommend that you always bring water, coats, there you can buy llama fabrics that are warm and cover you from the cold, they even make woolen socks, Bolivian culture is interesting and the locals are not very social but they are friendly and the children They are always playing in the street and they greet you, use maps and negotiate many times the cost of bus tickets.
Fundamental backpack, hiking boots, accessories and portable oxygen. In Bolivia, many accessories are cheap and regional, such as llama postcards, llama keychains and everything with this typical animal, so it is very nice to buy souvenirs to give away later.
The buses connect very well with the whole country, but there are also flights to move in less time, at a very good price. Hostels are cheap and comfortable.
Upon reaching the town of Uyuni, the bus driver understood that we slept on the bus.
