|Dion at heaven gates.|
Read first previous intro story to heaven gates here.
Salar de Uyuni is a salt desert. It looks completely different during the rainy season and the dry one. I had a huge luck to experience it at the end of rainy season, when the whole dessert was covered with few or several centimeters of the water and is reflecting the sky and clouds. It gived a feeling of the ultimate purity, infinity and unreality.

Our driver was behaving a bit strange. It was after sun set and he was wearing sun glasses. He also kind of missed the way out from the dessert. All of us ignore those symptoms. We were all digestion the beauty of the place.
|I was also there :)|
The policeman that show up was defending an agency and the driver. The policemen admitted that the guide was drunk but he refused to give it in writing or to do the blood test. For obvious reasons they could not check the driver since he was not around. Policeman said that they would not look for a driver and if we want we could take a taxi and look for him on our own. We were unable to convince the policemen to give us any statement in writing. The police station is just next to travel agency. At the end we did not wanted to push the situation further not to get risk to be beaten up.
