There is a reason google maps does not show a road between La Paz and Uyuni. Cause there isn't one. That doesn't stop Todo Turismo from operating a nightly bus connecting the two cities.

I shit you not, it felt like we were driving across a watermelon field. There were times we swayed so severely I was certain we would tip over. The best part was at 3am when we encountered a river in the road, yes a RIVER, that inhibited any further progress. We slept on the freezing bus for a few disorienting hours in the pouring rain, until 6am when the tide was low enough for us to cross.

Thirteen sleepless hours later, we arrived in the tiny desert town of Uyuni. But what we saw in the next three days made it SO worth it...
