From San Pedro to Uyuni

This surrealistic tour is very popular and many agecies based in San Pedro de Atacama (Chile) and Uyuni offer this 3 days off-road ride over the southern Bolivian Altiplano. I started from San Pedro and unfortunately I have no pictures of the first part because my "backpack satellite" which I use to carry with me when my backpack is stored safely somewhere was stolen in the bus terminal in Potosí. At the moment when the theft happened it contained only a guidebook of Chile, the box of my sunglasses, a map, toilet paper and the biggest loss for me, the exposed film from the first part of this trip. At least I am happy that the thief probably was not very happy with what he could snatch. The thieves in Slovakia and Hungary who have stolen my cars were more successful.... but they had the support of the police. Other than in Slovakia and Hungary crime seems here to be less organized.
