Hi there!

I don't know if this is the right place for this sort of thing, but I can't find anywhere else to inform you of this: the location for La Paz in Bolivia is off - you have it placed well north of Rurrenabaque, whereas it is in fact well south of there, and closer to Lake Titicaca and Copacaban. I don't know the exact coordinates, but I have found online indications that it is around 16.20S and 68.10W, which is where I have placed it on my trip map.

Hope you can fix it...

Heh, you're right, that's way off. Must be the worst the dataset we used for the map has ever been yet. (Although it wouldn't surprise me if there is indeed a tiny little village called La Paz at those coordinates, too.)

Sam or Peter should be able to fix that. (Note, decimal coordinates are -16.4951, -68.1372 (shamelessly copied from wikipedia).) :)

Thanks for the tip, I've updated the co-ordinates!
