“Spring is coming!” proclaims much of the United States. But let’s talk about another seasonal shift. December. Bolivia. Rainy season is truly arriving. And it is making itself known, bit by bit, on the world’s largest salt flat, Salar de Uyuni. You see, look ahead. It’s rainy season here. Water covers the earth. But look behind; it’s still dry. For a short time, rainy season and dry season will exist simultaneously. Gradually, rain will encroach upon the dry, patch by patch, until April, when the roles reverse. For a moment, though, there are two worlds right beside each other, intermingling. Where else?

Thanks! It’s an exquisite place. :)
This is very interesting! Thank you and also your photos are wonderful. :)
Thanks so much! I’m glad you enjoyed.
Amazing pictures! They make me want to visit Bolivia.
Thank you! Bolivia is incredible; definitely go if you can.
haha, I think you took this trip the other way around, from Chile, right? so you so the sunset in Salar de Uyuni! Actually I think this sequence of the tour is better!
I actually started in Tupiza and ended in Uyuni. The trip took a few days. It was still sunrise over the salar – we got up early on the last day to see it. But I quite liked starting in Tupiza and seeing much of SW Bolivia before ending in the salar.
