An update from Bolivia

September 12, 2011

So here I am in La Paz, Bolivia after nearly a month in Peru, enjoying the sunshine and wondering why it is that I’m feeling so breathless here, despite having spent the last several weeks at not much lower altitudes.

I’m nearing the end of my travels through Latin America and still have so much to tell you, like…

…conquering (sort of) my fear of heights in Costa Rica

…the epic night bus to Panama City

…clambering backwards up walls in the Ecuadorian Amazon

…becoming obsessed with Peruvian cuisine and the perfect chocolate brownie

…being taken to hospital in a Peruvian ambulance

…and conquering (most definitely) the Inca Trail to Machu Pichu.

And that’s just for starters.

So stay tuned, and sign up to the RSS feed, if you haven’t already.

    Sounds like you some great stories that you still have to share with us :). Did you go biking again in Peru, or was the hospital visit related to something else 😛

      Nooo, no biking! My hospital visit: yet another animal in Latin America took issue with me.

    Hi Megan, you’re looking great. So, you’re almost done with your adventures in South America? What’s next? Can’t wait to read all those stories and find out more about your plans.

      Thanks Romana! Yep, very nearly done. I think I’ll be exploring the world a little closer to home in the near future…but as for next year, anything is possible!

    Bolivia is one of my most favorite countries in the world! Can’t wait to hear more details about all of these mis/adventrues!

      Hey Andi – mis/adventures is the right word 😀 Bolivia has been beautiful so far. Can’t wait to hit the salt flats in the next couple of weeks.

    There is nothing, NOTHING, like Peruvian food. 😉

    Can’t wait to read about it!!

      It’s certainly much tastier than anywhere I’ve been in Latin America so far, Naomi! (Although to qualify that: I have NOT been to Mexico)

    I think you are a brave person walking the Inca trail to Machu Picchu. I took the train and bus and then stayed in the hotel up there.
