IMG guide Greg Vernovage reports from La Paz that all team members (and all of their duffel bags) have now made it to Bolivia. Stepping off the airplane at El Alto airport (LPB) at 13,325 feet is a big shock…just need to move slowly and breathe! From the airport the team drops down to the main city center area, at about 11,000 feet. Unlike most cities in the world, the most affluent parts of LaPaz are the lowest! Tomorrow the team will spend the day visiting the local “Witches Market” and exploring the city, followed by a second night in town. After that they move up to Lake Titicaca for more acclimatization. Everyone is doing well and are excited that the Bolivia adventure is underway!
