Once we arrived at the quad biking we were all feeling a bit intimidated and nervous as we were told that we would be riding them on public roads for a section of our tour and also the quad bikes that greeted us upon our arrival were a monstrous size!!!! We were given our helmets, gloves, goggles and wind breaker jackets and then when we looked like lesbian farmers/Power Rangers gone ...

I woke at 8.30 to people starting to return. Out of the 35 in total who hiked that day 12 didn't ...
... the locals were certainly serious about making their presence felt. This type of protest has been typical of every visit I have made to Bolivia. Vehicles, rocks and burning tyres in the south (rock country) and trees felled across the road near lake Titicaca. Some underlying serious unhappiness.
