San Pedro De Quemes town where we stayed overnight
Wow a normal morning with breakfast at 8:00am. Made a visit to Galaxy cave “Cueva De Las Galaxias”, struggled to find the key to be able to open the cave but then ended up in Shailendrra’s final resting place, perhaps!

Leave at 4:00am for morning shoot. 5:30am we arrive in Uyuni, Colchani area with our model Oscar
