Peru or Bust, one couple's journey to represent USA abroad and aid in ways small and large.

If you are bored with this site, it's not my fault.

Reflections on Bolivia..

leave a comment »

Much like going to Ecuador for the 1st time, several sights and aspects of life around La Paz and Bolivia stood out, for instance; the shoeshines that seriously look like they could be terrorists:

Or the proud ‘Cholita’ (Mountain woman) ‘Paceña‘ (related to La Paz) with their unique pollera dresses and undersized bowler hats.

These are strong, beefy women and we unfortunately missed the wrestling matches that take place every Sunday night.

Then there is the dead/dried llama fetus that you get at the witch markets to bury next to your house for good luck.

To the odd mannequins that are around the shops.

Headed down to the world’s largest salt flats of Uyuni in the south (with long time friends Adam and Holly), good times.
