This is a shot of the town of Oruro. We left Cochabamba early on a Wedesday morning and traveled 4 hours in a bus to arrive in Oruro. We had some time before our train left for Uyuni so we saw some of the sights in Oruro.
This one made me laugh too. It says "an experienced mechanic needed" below and not in the picture it said "ugently"
In the middle of the salt flats (pictures coming up next) are a few islands. There are a lot of cactuses there and we spent several hours climbing around and eating and resting on the island.
This is from earlier that day when we had a tour of how the process the salt to make it edible. This is a mountain waiting to be taken to the small town to be processed. Looks like snow huh?
We stayed at a motel made compeltly of salt. The floors, chairs, tables were all made out of salt.
And even the bed frames and end tables. The doors were made out of cactus wood.
This is a close up of a gyser.
Me and some new friends just chillin while we observed the afore mentioned volcano.
More of the red lake, it was one of the coolest parts of the trip for me.
This is how you fill your gas tank when you are out in the middle of nowhere.
