Hola Amigos and Amigas,
I made into Bolivia this am without any problems! I was blown away when I walked out of the airport and saw snow covered mountain peaks in the Andes towering over La Paz. This was mind blowing since I was at 13K feet!
In my near death experience in the cab this morning I learned that the summit on the large mountain was a little over 21K feet! I missed the name as went flying around a corner. I can´t wait until I can upload a picture from my hotel. ( I walked up five stories instead of taking the elevator...you can definitely feel the difference at that altitude).
For now I am going to hang out and wait for some of the others in the group to get in. The note that was posted from our guide has convinced me to not walking around by myself. Trust me, I stand out like TP in a suit.
BTW, I pulled a bone head move. I forgot to activate my international plan before I left. This means I will not be able to receive text messages or update via my mobile. I will have to go old school and rely on internet cafe´s and the occasional hotel lobby.
