Sep 1, 2012 - Ein paar schöne Tage bei Freunden in Trinidad.

Ich flog für 5 Tage in den "Dschungel" nach Trinidad, der Hauptstadt des Departements Beni zu Waldo und seiner Familie bei denen ich ja vor sechs Jahren für fünf Wochen in El Satelite im El Alto wohnen durfte. Norah und ihr Sohn Leo waren auch zu Besuch. In der Stadt fahren vor allem Motorfahrräder, welche die Taxis ersetzen (würde so viele Autos wie Motorfahrräder herumfahren, wäre das Chaos wohl vorprogrammiert). Bericht folgt.

Jun 26, 2007 - welcome to the jungle we got bites and rashes.

Its been 3 weeks since we last posted an entry of our adventures - where to start? For these weeks have been the HIGHLIGHT thus far... Following La Paz we cycled down the ¨worlds most dangerous road¨. Why not? Nic was disappointed because he only wanted to go faster, whilst Fi's hands were sore from braking the whole six hours descending over 3000m. Beautiful scenery, cycling along a dusty rocky road snaking its way down through the valley through waterfalls and with a sheer drop on one side. After celebrating with cerveza and an...

Mar 22, 2007 - Trinidad ( Bolivien )

In Trinidad sind wir morgens mit dem Bus angekommen und mussten uns erst an das Klima in der Stadt gewöhnen: noch heisser und noch schwüler als in Sta. Cruz. Dazu liegen die Abwasserkanäle überirdisch am Strassenrand und dementsprechend schlecht ist die Luft in der Stadt. Es war so arm und die Leute haben uns so angestarrt, dass wir uns kaum getraut haben zu fotografieren. Sehenswürdigkeiten hat die Stadt auch keine. An den Randbezirken der Stadt war ein Flüchtlingslager für die Menschen aus dem Norden errichtet worden, ganz Nordbolivien...

May 22, 2006 - Trinidad - Not like the island in Caribbean

22/5 Got in Trinidad by 6am and got a taxi to the hotel. We were both tired and went to sleep. Woke up at 9am and went out for a lazy breakfast. Took 2 motorbike taxis back to the terminal. Heading out tomorrow at 9am for Rurrenabaque. Nothing to do in this town apart from Arcade that hires playstation 2 by the hour.

Tripping 2005/06

Mar 13, 2006 - Trinidad, Bolivia

We got in around 6am this morning. We were hoping to get on the 10 oclock bus to Rerrenabaque (about 15 hours north). Of course, we had our tickets and everything, and by 1pm, they said, the bus is canceled and wont leave until tomorrow. Its just like Africa! So, theres nothing really we can do, just go with the flow. We got some real food in our system, and going to get to bed really early, getting ready for a long day of travel tomorrow. Here in Trinidad, weve got to ride on the "moto-taxis". Its pretty sweet, you just hop on the back of...

Jul 27, 2005 - Jungle tour to Rurrenabaque

There was 6 people on the tour, a Belgian couple, a French couple and Karin and I. We started the 5 day tour by driving for about 5 hours to a small town in the middle of the jungle. The road the whole way was just like the most dangerous road in the world - it only had enough room for one vehicle and went through the mountains. The driver said that 15 people a year die on the road. Our driver wasn't that good and drove right next to the edge of the cliff when he had about 3 metres to the right of him. We got to the town which had a nice...

Gemma's RTW trip

Jul 3, 2005 - Trinidad

We treated ourselves to a flight in a 17 seater plane - the narrowest plane we'd flown on!! We aimed to get a lift on a cargo boat going north to the Brazillian border. Trinidad is in the Amazon basin & so a lot of goods are trasported there via river. On arrival in the town we headed straight to the port office. We were directed towards a boat that would be leaving for Guayamarin and so went in search of the captain. Luke was invited on board & disappeared for some time - long enough for me & Marie to start worrying if he'd been...

Apr 28, 2005 - Trinidad (Bolivia)

Ensimmainen bussimatkamme oli sittenkin viela pelkkaa lasten leikkia, silla vasta bussimatka "Rurresta" Trinidadiin kertoi lopullisen totuuden Bolivian tieverkosta. Kuin olisi ollut 15 tuntia putkeen jossain Linnanmaen hoykytysvehkeessa! Ei mitaan mahdollisuutta nukkua tai tehda yhtaan mitaan, silla tarisit, hypit ja pompit istuimellasi jatkuvasti. Ei voinut edes ajatella, koska aivot velloivat paakopassa puolelta toiselle. Tie oli yhta kinttupolkua, jonka sade oli paikoittain muuttanut kuoppaiseksi kuravelliksi. Tunsin olevani enemman...

Apr 2, 2005 - Bolivia, Trinidad

01-04-05 I made it allright to Trinidad. I managed to catch a flota (buss) in Sam Ramon to Trinidad. Since the buss was full, the two of us (a woman and myself) were accomodated in the driver's cabin. I was "seated" next to the driver at his left (!) hand side on a little bench. It gave me a good view of the road and an impression of what the driver adn co-driver do during the trip: chewing coca leaves. Also the person in the toll office chewes coca leaves, to keep them awake clearly. The buss was a nice modern one, interesting to notice...
