Cementerio de Trenes

One thing Uyuni does have is a giant tetanus playground.

Right outside of town is a ‘train cemetery’ with maybe 100 cars and engines of various vintage, slowly rusting away in the desert. According to legend, one of these trains was robbed by Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid shortly before they met their demise south of here.  We have no idea which one, but they were all good enough for our reenactments.

Kid, when I say let’s go somewhere like Bolivia, let’s go somewhere like Bolivia

-Butch Cassidy (in the movie)

    How come you’re carrying CHALK with you?
    In the bottomless storage compartments of a VW Westy… Just one of the daily necessities. 😀

    Sidewalk chalk is a great way to keep a kid entertained when all you’ve got is a sidewalk… or a rusty train.
