Parading Through The Streets Of La Paz




SUNDAY, JANUARY 7, 2007. LA PAZ, BOLIVIA. After returning from a three day tour of Salar de Uyuni and surrounds, I caught the overnight bus last night from Uyuni to La Paz (90 Bolivianos, $11). I surprisingly slept about 8 hours of the 12 hour bus ride.

I have uploaded photos from my three day tour near Uyuni and from the mines of Potosi (Jan. 2 onwards). Accompanying text will be posted shortly.

Tomorrow, I head to Copacabana on the shore of Lake Titicaca, my last stop in Bolivia before continuing northwest into Peru.

Just around corner from my hotel, Bolivians were celebrating with dance, music, and song. Before I knew it, I went from spectator to participant as the Bolivians invited me to join in on the party. What an absolutely fun time! Muchos gracias to all my new Bolivian amigos for making my last day in La Paz a memorable one.
