2-11 盐湖-乌尤利Salt Flat – Uyuni

之前已经在Red Planet网上预订了3天两夜的行程,早上8:30到旅行社做check-in,得了一个坏消息,就是最近盐湖下雨太大,原订的盐湖日出日落星空和入住盐酒店都取消了,和旅行社争取了很久都没有办法再安排,昨晚和他们通讯时,都没有说改行程,如果早知道,昨晚就可以去其他旅行社问一下,最后是按照他们的新安排,第三天回程时,马上换车再出发去盐湖拍日落(补300美元)。

旅行社要求我们将两个行李合成一个,原因4驱车不够空间,我们还租了水鞋在盐湖使用。在旅行社中遇到两个上海来的女孩,她们是参加一日团。我们的团是3架车,每架车有6个人旅客,我们的车只有4个,另外两个是丹麦来的情侣。
