Initial Thoughts on Bolivia

There are any number of things that come to mind when considering Bolivia. Some of the most popular are:

- llamas and alpacas

- dangerous roads

- butch and sundance

- mountains

- siestas

- political imbalance

Yet what you see when you´re here is something more like this:

- roads that define hairpin turns

- stunning night starscapes

- constantly changing geographic formations

- women in wide, starched skirts with bowler hats and long braided hair

- vast stretches of untamed land - rugged, arid, dusty, and frigid (at night)

- friendly people who speak easier to understand Spanish than the Argentinians
