If you cant understand the "Spanish", that is Amara, the old southern Indian (Inca) language which is the 1st language in these parts.

For our spectators in Uyuni, if you want some decent grub be sure to check out Minuteman Pizza. It's located inside the Tonito hotel and owned by an USAian and his Bolivian wife. Awesome desayunos and cafe too!

I have no relation to the owner.

Not voodoo. They worship Pachamama here, "mother earth god".

I seem to remember a story from 2012 Dakar, when Toby was exhausted one night with some way to go to the finish. The guys on the sweeper truck wanted to help, but knew he was DQd as soon as the loaded his bike. Then some bright spark fellow competitor who had withdrawn offered to ride Toby's bike for a while, while Toby slept in the back of the truck.
Accepting help from fellow competittors is allowed.
Can someone confirm that that happened?

damn Tupiza looks fairly dry too. The rainy season must not be too bad yet. This part of Bolivia has a Grand Canyon feel to it.

The journos are oblivious to the whole Dakar thing, they still say Coma is in the lead..

Barreda left 4th so Coma - 6 minutes... He's going very fast...

Why is it the best live footage I've seen yet is coming from Bolivia?

Yes this happened. It happened on Stage 5 this year too where an organization guy apparently rode a bike for 40km in the heat while the rider recuperated in the air conditioned car.
