Uyuni Train Cemetery

The last stop of our tour was the Uyuni Train Cemetery.  The town of Uyuni used to be a railway hub but after all the mines dried up, the trains were left to rust and flounder for future tourists to visit :).  If your tour does not go there it's only a 30 minute walk from Uyuni……and definitely worth the trip!

In the recent years, some trains and train parts have been modified into an old rusty playground (that definitely would not pass the safety standards in Canada!!)….. we were just glad we had our tetanus shots updated before we left :).

I want to warn other tourists about David Lebras, which I was fortunate not to do any tours with him, but had the misfortune of running into him. He is an unstable and very pushy person. His instability is a result of his habitual usage of crack, which is something he bragged to me on multiple instances throughout my conversation with him and his girlfriend. On a single instance where I reluctantly went to his place, he attacked his girlfriend and myself with a guitar. I was fortunate to suffer no physical damages, but his girlfriend was bleeding on top of her head from the damage. When talking to the actual Bolivian residents in La Higuera, they informed me of his repeated violent attacks and attacks on his girlfriend, her father, and other people. On these violent attacks, he is usually prepared with a knife with intentions to kill. I was fortunate that he was unprepared and opted to try attacking me with a guitar. In addition, the Bolivians who live in La Higuera, including people who actually witnessed Che in person, informed me that he has absolutely no knowledge about anything, and they perceive him to be a tourist thief. In addition, from what they tell me, he really doesn't really bother interacting with the inhabitants of La Higuera neither. I suspect some of the information he gave you seemed to be complete lies. I highly advise all tourists to stay away from him at all costs, as your life could be in potential danger. If you can speak Spanish, I would suggest doing any La Higuera tours with Adelio, who will give you a great price, and is very knowledgeable about Che and his final days. In addition, his father witnessed Che Guevara being captured in La Higuera. The information you would receive from him is highly accurate as well.
