Thanks for pointing me in the direction of your report. It makes for an excellent read. I think we will plan to ride the same road as you from Oruro to Uyini but in the oppoiste direction. I also then hope to ride on the flats themselves and hopefully get to see the Cactus Island you mentioned.
How did you guide manage to navigate you across the flats to the island? Did he use GPS or was he just familiar with the route? We have also been advised to try and get to Laguna Verde. Have you heard anything about that at all and if so, any idea how we will find the thing if we don't have GPS co-ordinates?
Thanks again for your input. I really enjoyed your ride report.
