We climbed 800m out of La Paz and continued our cycling on the antiplano which is usually just under 4000m. Along the way we encounter numerous villages and pass along side markets. Eventually we camp on the edge of the enormous Bolivian salt flat.
The next day we venture out on the flat with amazement and spent a cool night in a hotel built out of salt blocks. Today we begin the day with a lung burning time trial for a short distance of 7km. My time was 14 min plus. I´m not sure of my placement but I am sure that it was very stressful on my body at that elevation. A longer distance may have surely been a disaster.
Two days here in Uyuni to relax and clean the salt off my bike. I hope the Shimano spoke tool arrives while I am here. Receiving it in Argentina may be impossible.
