Fertile valley in an otherwise very dry, barren desert:
Thanks for saving us ATARI spaceship!
We are heading east to Bolivia to ride the the Coipasa and Uyuni salt flats. But first we need to get back on the Altiplano, over 14000 feet up.
After 5724 feet of climbing in only 26 miles in the blazing sun, I’m completely and totally exhausted.
Today knocked the snot right out of me. I’m down for the count. Pooped. Beat. Knackered. Wiped out. Stick a fork in me, I’m done.
At this rate, we have two more days just like this until it levels off.
