On the second day of our tour, we crossed the salt desert from North to South and made our way to the Eduardo Avaroa National Park. Many interesting sights along the way, including a mountain cavern with fossilized algae, proof that this was once a sea (as if the massive salar was not proof enough). We stumbled upon train tracks going to the Chilean border, and made some funny pictures, comforted by the knowledge that the train runs only twice a week, but we rapidly discovered that one of these times was... right then! The landscape changed drastically, with deserts and high mountains. We had a break at a lagoon full of flamingos and then arrived at the Desert Hotel, which is of course in the middle of the desert!
