Second Bolivia Team Hikes the Sun Island

The views and turquoise waters of the Mediterranean of the Americas didn’t disappoint today. We enjoyed a relaxing hike across the length of the Sun Island, watched a baby lamb take its first steps, saw the sunset light the Cordillera Real with alpenglow, and finished off the day with dinner by a warm eucalyptus wood fire.
Having completed our cultural touring and pre-mountains acclimating phase, we are headed to Condoriri and the mountains tomorrow!
Buenas noches,

Second Bolivia Team in La Paz

The second team of the season has now begun their adventure in Bolivia!

Yesterday, we met for a morning gear check followed by lunch and a tour of the city. We traveled on the scenic La Paz cable car system, took in views from a variety of overlooks, and strolled through one of the world’s largest open air markets.

Today we traveled from La Paz to the ruins of Tiwanaku and then along the shores of Lake Titicaca. We will continue acclimating, touring, and hiking in the lake region tomorrow.
