Bolivia 2018 – Introducing Team Lucas

Buenas noches y saludos!

Today’s explorations began with a morning hike high above Copacabana. We then boarded our private boat and made a visit to the Isla de la Luna (Moon Island) and enjoyed a picnic lunch on the beach.

Upon arrival to the Isla del Sol (Sun Island) we met Lucas, a four month old orphan baby alpaca. Lucas turned out to be the star of the day and has now, with unanimous support from the team, been added as an honorary member.

Even after the excitement of meeting Lucas, our sunset hike to the highest point of the Isla del Sol was still a dramatic way to finish the day.

Tomorrow we are excited to make our transition to the mountains! We will have much less internet access so pictures will be less frequent but we will update you as we can.

Thanks for following along!
