|Tupiza - a tiny town in the middle of Butch Cassidy country. Was supposed to watch the video in Uyuni before coming here, but some others had a film playing already...
Some more stunning scenery. Lots of rock formations but with lush green in the valley. To explore I went on a tri-tour. Starting in jeeps we were driven to the top of a hill, where bikes were off loaded and we biked down...this definitely confirmed that mountain biking is NOT my sport! The equipment was very poor and the road surface was semi-cross country. (very sore the next day!) Down for the first 10Km then slightly up for the next 10Km. Lunch was followed by a relaxing drive to the horses and a gentle ride through the very dry and dusty, but beautiful Valle de los Machos. Even managed to master the Western-style horse-riding; holding the reigns in one hand only....and clinging on the saddle for dear-life with the other!!
Slept in tents and never before seen so many stars in the sky.
From here, after nearly 3 weeks at over 10,000ft we left the Altiplano and thankfully returned to sea-level.
