Salt LakeSeptember 24, 2020 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C
We didn't make it to Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia, but Turkey has a huge Salt Lake to offer instead. So that's where we went today. On the way, Hadji stopped us right at the time when we were looking for a breakfast place. He invited us to join him because he saw us on the road and generally enjoys company for his meals. As he used to live in Switzerland 20 years ago, he could speak some German, so communicating wasn't to difficult.
We met lots of friendly greeting people and had to turn down some offers for a talk or tea as we still had a long and exhausting way to go. In order to get to Tuz Gölü (= Salt Lake), we had to cycle on a long dirt road through a lot of flat nothingness. As it hasn't rained since April, the lake was completely dry and we could walk, cycle and make funny photos on the white salt.
After some time, we continued to Sultanhanı where we are staying on a small family run campground. Here, we visited the Kervansaray which used to be a safe accommodation for the merchants along the silk road.Read more
