South America - Home

The final furlong!

We are currently in a very rainy Buenos Aires. We´ve had a couple of hectic days that have involved far too much political demonstration and not enough shopping and eating....

It took longer to leave Bolivia than expected. Blockades in the South meant that we left via the Salar de Uyuni, a last minute decision and one of the best tours we´ve done during the trip. This involved travelling across an area of the Bolivian altiplano that is covered in vast dried salt beds, multi coloured lakes, flamingo´s and volcanoes. It is like travelling through a Salvador Dali painting. Mind blowing. It was a great way to leave Bolivia.

Our time in Argentina has been brief but interesting. Three days constant bus travel took us via Salta for one night in the North East of Argentina and then to Buenos Aires two days ago. We fly home at midday tomorrow!

Hasta Luego from South America.
