... throat, no shower, no running water, hole in the ground toilet, and restless night was the promise that we would be getting dropped off at the Chilean border in the morning and would be at our hostel in Chile by 1 pm. Well, we set out in the morning to see the white and green lagoons (the green one is 70% arsenic, the same composition as a lagoon on Mars so NASA had come to study here) but we couldn't see any of it because we were in the middle of a snowstorm. I heard the driver ...

... level and ended in the jungle down at 1500m above sea level. We spent a bit of time around town, did a lot of souvenir shopping, but not in the witches' market you'll all be relieved to here. Full of sugar pictures and dried llama foetuses for burning. Gross. We found the biggest fruit juice I've ever seen. It was amazing. Overall a great city, one of my favourites. Too little time, and we're moving on ...

... we knew and Matt's brother Dan and friend Errol were lovely too. We spent the ride to the death road catching up with Matt and hearing about his travel stories. When we arrived at the lake, our starting off point our guide introduced himself, Chelo and we got busy putting on our protective gear. Pants, jacket, elbow pads, knee pads, helmets and sunglasses.

... pretty excited but will be eating poor the next few weeks to make up for it. Bolivia is not as cheap as we were told. Time was running out to get back in time for the wrestling pick up so we left Nicky and Rod in the tour agency and bolted back to our hostel so we could go to the Cholita wrestling. Cholita wrestling turned out to be one of the cheesiest and best things we have done yet. The Cholita's are Bolivian women wrestlers. They dress the same as the women on the street with the ...
