La Jardine Hotel in Uyuni


Made my way from La Paz to Uyuni yesterday included 2 1/2 hour bus ride and 8 1/2 hour non stop train ride. Scenery was amazing and monotonous. From the near desert plains to seeing flocks of pink flamingos and heards of llamas, passing many nearly deserted mud brick, small towns stradeling the train tracks.

My hotel, La Jardine (probably the nicest hotel in town at $60 US) is very nice but not very warm. Still slept good under comforter, alpaca blanket and my coat, wool scarf and sweatshirt. Didn't notice until this morning that there was an electric heater attached to the bed. Had a nice evening watching the last episode of Survivor with Hulu. Now I'm ready for an amzing tour of the famous Bolivian Salt Flats. Temperatre for next 2 days H 57, L 27!! Traveling light with just my day backpack.
