The team has arrived here in Bolivia along with all their duffel bags! We had a good day of organizing, doing gear checks, and then had a nice welcome dinner this evening. The team members are all doing well. Because Bolivia is such high altitude, the importance of not going too fast and taking it easy for the first few days is a big topic of conversation. Tomorrow we will do a LaPaz city tour, visit the Witches Market, and San Francisco Cathedral. We’ll also get some good views of nearby peaks Huayna Potosi and Illimani. After dinner on our way back to the hotel we decided to stroll through a park and get a photo with the Llama statue; we’ll get to see the real thing in a couple days. All’s well here in Bolivia!
