    @Sam: While the salt flats in Argentina are beautiful, they don’t compare to the vastness of ones in Bolivia (Salar de Uyuni). I’d highly recommend taking the 4-5 day jeep trip from Tupiza to the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia – really amazing.

    @David: This photo was taken in April or May. The strips of water are manmade – this is part of the process to gather the salt to sell.

    @Samuel: Thanks! Like you, we’d also welcome an opportunity to go back across the salt flats again – really beautiful!

    @Samantha: Thanks. We realize Buenos Aires gets most of the attention in Argentina, but Salta and northwestern Argentina are a real treat, especially if you can manage to rent a car.
