Since the road to Uyuni runs through mountainous desert again I won't include many pictures, spot the dust devil







one of the reasons to visit Uyuni is the old railway museum there, wnen they stopped the train service to the area they just parked the rolling stock and walked away, anyway as you go sifting down the road to Uyuni and go around one of the curves whoa there's the sign for the museum















The museum seems to be important enough they have military personnel guarding it.

arriving in Uyuni and the first priority is gas, since Bolivia is in the midst of a gas shortage and the gas stations don't have any the next best thing is the black market





Next: the salt hotel and Salar de Uyuni
