My Journey Round The World

279 days on the road…



After such an adventure I did again 6 hours jeep the next day to reach Tupiza… I wanted to go there by train but it was absolutly impossible to get a ticket… After queueing for more than 2 hours – after I asked the agency to buy a ticket for me but they didn’t managed… – and meeting the women from the agency who finaly confirm that they where no train before the next Tuesday – Don’t even try to understand how does it work, absolutly crasy system! – I choose the jeep option suggested by the agency. This is the Salar jeeps doing Tupiza-Uyuni trips and leaving people in Uyuni, who drive back to Tupiza and take other passengers to make the trip back worse it! Hope you get everything… Not as fun as the Salar trip, just a taxi here, a bit more expensive but quicker than the night bus. Anyway, landscape was supposed to be beautiful… Indeed! Even with 10 people in the jeep – I don’t even know how I survived this 6 hours non-stop! But when you have no choice you do… - it was again an amasing travel! :) Difficult to take pictures when you’re stuck with so many passengers, so you’ll only have the one from around Tupiza which is surrounded by red mountains – beautiful. Not a really nice city where all travel agencies are looking for people to go to the Salar – I was happy to see the excitement again but sad not to be part of it! - they don’t really offer anything else than horse riding – which is pretty expensive here, nearly as Europe! – and with this heat I avoid it! So I just went on my own around the city. I’m leaving tonight to Tarija. Landscape is again supposed to be wonderful but by night, I’m not sure I’ll see a lot – actually it seems to be safer like that, hope I’ll survive! :)

Guten Tag and vielen Dank für Ihre Mitteilung! Das macht mir sehr Vergnügen, Sie zu lesen! Ich wünsche Ihnen ebenfalls ein sehr gutes Jahr 2010 von Argentinien.
Gesundheitsquote geht das eher gut :) und ich bin gut zufrieden, schließlich weggegangen zu sein, selbst wenn ich geverfohlen habe, in Paris im September zu bleiben! Kleiner Alarm in Mexiko, aber nach einem langen Tag Ruhe ist sich alles wirklich gute gevorden! Soeben ermüdet genug durch die Hitze, aber außer das geht alles sehr gut! :) Ich hoffe, dass Sie mein Deutsch erfassen, der immer mehr ablehnt!
Am Vergnügen, Sie zu lesen :)
