Our Last Day in South America

We start our two-day travel to return home from South America very early tomorrow morning, but we’ve got one last day to enjoy La Paz and eat some more Bolivian food (although it is pretty heavy). We survived our trip down “Death Road” yesterday on our way to see some beautiful waterfalls in the town of Coroico. It was a very interesting trip as we went from 4,800 meters (15,750 feet) down to 1,000 meters (3,275 feet) on a very narrow road in just a couple of hours. We were shrouded in clouds as the cold air of the mountains trapped the moist air of the jungle, making it very eerie. We’ll do a post with full details from our trip, but here are a couple of pictures as we head out the door to do some final exploring.

  1. I would be freaked out on that road, not even so much because of the narrowness, but because I’d imagine slipping on that mud and sliding off the side into the abyss!
