The first evening of our Salt Flats Tour was spent quite pleasantly in very basic accommodation that we shared with our French friends, Celia and Gael. The food that was prepared by our cook was wholesome and tasty. I certainly enjoyed it much more than the food we had on our trek to Machu Picchu! I suppose one can be more creative when only cooking for a small group.
Our second day was full of amazing scenery, just like the first day. It is not easy to describe the journey. The colours were so diverse and dependent on the light. One moment you are in a desert, the next you are in the mountains. I will just let the pictures do the talking and see what I can add to them.
Us in front of Laguna Colorada, the red lake, with flamingos. The wind was howling. The lake is red due to all the salts and minerals and crustaceans in the water that the flamingos thrive on and gives them their lovely pink colour!
