Tupiza as a starting point

Tupiza may not be the most happening town, nor the most obvious starting place for a tour to the Salar de Uyuni (that would be the actual town of Uyuni), but I had met enough people on my travels who said that Tupiza was the place to go to if you wanted a more pleasant experience.
