Day 128 Potosi to Uyuni January 10
Today was even better than yesterday. The short 200km ride to Potosi was full of great scenery from red rock canyons to snow capped mountains. There was virtually no cloud in the sky and it was a bit warmer than yesterday.
I forgot to post a photo of my new rear tire, so here it is with 2,000km on it
Look closely and you can see the Salar on the horizon
When I arrived in Uyuni I could tell there was something big happening. The main plaza was being prepped for Dakar with a huge stage and vendors were setting up tents. All the stores in the town were receiving huge supplies of water, soft drinks and Dakar swag.
I found the Hostel that Eran was at and got the bike parked safely in the courtyard. The price of this dorm room bed yesterday was $8.75, for the next 4 days it’s $30. The same thing has happened with food prices too. It’s a pretty exciting place right now.
Tomorrow I will go on a Tour of the Salar de Uyuni.
