Day 18 – Family Vacation across the salt flats.

To get to the Bolivia’s main quinoa growing region, we toured the vast salt flats (Salar of Uyuni) for two days, marveling at the extreme nature and beauty of Bolivia’s Southern Altiplano. Here’s a photo essay of the trip highlights including the Salt Palace Hotel, which we visited to pick up another touring family from.
