Uyuni Train Wrecks

Monday 7th July

A slow day in Uyuni as we stock up in the local market before the next ride...



As I take lunch in the market comedor, the butcher´s meat delivery arrives. I eat 2 feet away as a severed cow´s head is brought through the dining area. It´s a strange sight as a man carries it face first, an arm under each horn. I´m sure it winks at me as it passes, but it takes more than that to put a cyclist off his food. It´s followed by several bodies and I finish dining to the sound of buzz saws getting to work...

There is a train graveyard on the edge of town for old rolling stock...



Ouch...



"Needed - a mechanic with experience"...



Train wrecks, or slides - depends on your point of view...



Tomorrow we head out for Potosi - the highest city in the world at 4060 metres. Reports are in, and the roads ahead are bad. Should be a challenge...
