What a scenery!!!

We woke up early and continued on our 3 Day Overland Tour. Again the landscape was breathtaking as we road along the Bolivian desert. Our next stop was a very strange rock formation millions of years old which the locals called the Little Italia. The rocks were enormous and you can tell they were ancient. We took some photos and continued to a small lake full of Flamingos and where dozens of Lamas were having a drink. After some photos we continued on our way arriving after an hour in another rock formation and then we stopped at a famous canyon called Vale de Las Rocas. We had lunch, prepared by our guides next to a small stream and continued on to San Juan Village to see the museum and acropolis. However, when we arrived the museum was almost closing so we continued on. Our next stop was a small salt desert in the middle of nowhere. We stopped on top of the train tracks and took some photos. We continued on through the beautiful landscape until our next stop… tha Atulcha Salt Hotel, just meters away from the famous Salar de Uyuni. Our night was spent in a Salt Hotel with shared bath.
