- BoliviaAfter a short flight from Chile, we landed at La Paz, Bolivia, possibly one of the highest airports in the world.

- Surviving Death Road
Next stop La Paz, the highest capital city (yes bolivia has two capitals) in the world. It is the gateway to death road and the Bolivian Amazon rainforest. And a dirty gateway at that! Although a bit run down, dirty Posted by TomAndKat in On The Road Again... | Apr 1, 2015

- A Welcome ChangeBolivia has been a welcomed change for us, with its indigenous people in traditional clothing, fewer tourists and little evidence of the western world.

- San Pedro de Atacama and the Salar de UyuniThe 17 hour bus ride North to San Pedro from La Serena was a long expanse of desert. The journey was fine, at worst a little boring (endless desert).
