Uyuni

Posted by on May 17, 2010 in Bolivia, Motorcycle Vagabonding, South America | Comments Off on Uyuni

April 30, 2010 I left La Paz later than I’d like, destination: Uyuni. Once I left the valley that La Paz lies in, the road was f-l-a-t. But it was high and cool, and I was sooooooo looking forward to reaching the salt flats in Uyuni. It was about 4:00 when I hit Oruru, and I decided to stay there for the night. Unfortunately, I had to do about 5 laps of the town, plus stop at 4 different hotels, to realize Oruro was e-x-p-e-n-s-iv-e. Like three times the price of La Paz. And I though Bolivia was supposed to be cheap!  Anyway, I ended up at Hostal Boston for about $7 with a shared bath, and I could not believe my eyes when they opened the car park: MOTO TRAVELERS!!!

Posted by on May 16, 2010 in Bolivia, Motorcycle Vagabonding, South America | Comments Off on Carretera de la Muerte – Bolivia’s “Road of Death”

Well the next day I got even luckier: another friend of Eric’s had passed by the hotel just as I was coming back from Copacabana all exhilarate form my ride, and we got to talking. I told him I was heading to the “Road of Death”…Luis took the day off work and decided to ride with me. His brother also joined us, and the three of us had a blast riding together. Several tours gather here at the top of this pass to ride the tarmac to where the “Road of Death” begins. Here’s one such group getting started. Yup! There’s our road… My tourguide, Luis: A nondescript right turn gets us onto the famous “Road of Death”. while more of a tourist attraction now rather than a truly harrowing road (trucks not take the new, asphalted road).
