Bolivia 2019 Begins!

Welcome to our 2019 Bolivia cybercast!

Our long planned and awaited for trip began today in La Paz! We started the day with a gear check, followed by lunch, and a tour of the city. Our favorite mode of transportation for the day was via the impressively scenic cable car network that now makes an entire circuit around the city of La Paz. We enjoyed getting up out of the city traffic to take in aerial views of the steep La Paz hillsides.

Tomorrow we head out of the city and it looks like we have a lively group ready for some Bolivian style adventuring!

Thanks for following along!
