After La Paz I continued my trip going to the world famous Titicaca lake, sometimes considered in books as the highest navigable lake in the world (3800m).
After Sucre, I headed to the capital city of Bolivia, La Paz. This city is again located very high in the mountains, from 3600m to 3900m... but surprisingly there are even higher mountains around... probably something like 5000m at least.
After Uyuni I decided to take the night bus to the more interesting town of Sucre... Supposedly 9 hours of bus but technically requiring 11 hours (bolivian magic).
Finally I was able to leave San Pedro de Atacama to Uyuni for a 3 days trek in 4X4 in the mountains.
After this exhausting trip I decided to take some rest in San Pedro de Atacama. This town is a very touristic place in the middle of the most arid desert of the world, the Atacama desert. To give you an idea of what this means, there are a minimum of 330 days per year without any cloud in the sky... and on my side I did not see any.
I know that so far I have kept the habit of writing one post per place I've been staying at... but this bus trip through the Andes has been a real experience for me, a in addition I'm planning to stay quite a long time in San Pedro de Atacama and won't publish much for a few days.
After another night in the bus, I ended up in the city of Salta, main city of northern Argentina. Technically there's not so much do do there as this is mainly a stage to northern Argentina like Jujuy or on my side to Chile.
After another night in a bus, I arrived in Cordoba, second biggest city in Argentina, famous for hosting a lot of students and the associated night life.
After a long night in the bus (this time with cama... some kind of business class in buses) I arrived in the city of Mendoza in northern Argentina. This city is a nice and calm city, but it is mostly well known for its vineyards.
