When you don’t think the views can get any better, nature surprises you.
We had some crazy rock formations! How did these rocks get here? There were many active volcanos millions of years ago, and when they literally blew their tops off, rocks were strewn everywhere. The wind and sand have carved some interesting features in these giant boulders.
Another salt lake!
This was the only active volcano that we saw on our tour. The top picture was at the lava flow and where I wrote about tourists using the place as a public toilet.
Did you know that Quinoa came in three colours? Red, brown and yellow. The red is meant to be the finest. Although Quinoa is one of the super foods on our planet, it is not a staple food for South Americans. Of course they use it, but it is mainly sold for export.
Here is the salt hotel we stayed in on our last night of the tour. There has been a lot of controversy about staying in salt hotels. This one was okay as it was not on the salt flats. It is not okay for the environment to stay in the salt hotels on the salt flats due to the plumbing and waste issues. You can work that one out.
It was difficult not to take photos of the llammas whenever we saw some. They are just so cute.
