Of Stars and Salt Flats - Sundowner Magazine by Tricia Welsh

An adventure from La Paz in Bolivia via the spectacular salt flats of the Salar de Uyuni to the Atacama Desert in Chile gave Tricia Welsh the chance to savour the region’s diverse gastronomic and astronomic delights with a generous lick of salt in between.

Bolivia and Chile are probably not high on most people’s wish lists, but when they both come in among the top 10 of the New York Times’ nominated list of places to visit in 2015, you have to stop to consider why. In probably the oddest pairing of tourism strategies ever, these two countries are spearheading tourism to their shores through novel and vastly different means: gastro-tourism (wining and dining) and astro-tourism (star-gazing).
