It has always been a goal of mine to visit the Bolivian salt flats since seeing the unique landscape online years ago.  The salt flats are not an easy place to get to; the most common route is to find your way to Uyuni and have a tour company take you out.  Getting to Uyuni itself involves a trip into La Paz to catch a...
