After completely our 2,5000km trek from Lima, Peru to Potosi, Bolivia we had some time to kill. We ventured around on flying carpets and came to the Salar de Uyuni, the largest Salt Flat in the World. We spent 2 days and 2 nights skating and sleeping on salt. To our luck we came during the wet season so most of it had a centimeter of water on top of the salt making the reflections amazing and skating a bit wet. Where else in the world can you skate through clouds, hahaha. We did find dry spots on the outside perimeter of the salt flat, which made traveling more easy. The salt actually slid and rod fairly well, a bit cushy. Our clothes, shoes and boards however took a good beating. The salt had shrivel up our pants and made our shoes turn ¼ size smaller, haha. Some of the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen. Truly an amazing place, if you ever get the opportunity I would go there, Salar de Uyuni in BOLIVIA.
