... actually was space! We paid an extra 50 bolivianos ($7) and boarded to leave about 5 minutes later.

The women are all wearing the traditional chulita dress, big full skirts are apparently designed to accentuate the hips, to promise good child bearing. Bolivians like ...

After driving an hour to our start point we were given all our safety gear and running instructions on how to use downhill mountain bikes. Next up was blessing Pachamama (Mother Earth), our bikes and ourselves with 96% alcohol ...
