Land locked Bolivia - who would have thought it could be so amazing.  The culture, the biking, the history, the jungle, the lake, and the mountains.  For such a relatively small country Bolivia has an amazing array of things to see and do.   The sheer diversity of amazing activities make it hard not to give Bolivia the top stop award for our trip (not to mention the low costs).  We petted aligators, watched women and midgets wrestle, climbed a mountain, blew up dynamite, saw the birth place of the Inca's, and biked down the World's Most Dangerous Road.  While traveling the country we read the Motorcyle Diaries since this was the last stop for Che in his revolutionary efforts - great.
Charis' Top Three:
1) Mountain Biking Down the World's Most Dangerous Road -A crazy experience starting out in the snow  and cold and biking down to the warmth and seeing the views as you go down the most dangerous road in the world
2) Pampas Tour - getting into the canoe and seeing hundreds of aligators within minutes was quite amazing, also seeing the huge Capibara Rodents was quite an experience. It was definitley a new experience and amazing
3) Salar de Uyuni - was so strange to see miles and miles of salt and a lot of fun taking the funky pictures
Arik's Top Three
1) Pampas Tour - fishing Piranah, petting aligators, and swimming with river dolphins.  This was the experience of a life time.
2) Huyana Potosi - Bagging a 6000m peak was amazing and I will probably cherish that for a long time. If not for the ridiculous effort required it would be my #1.
3) Salar de Uyuni - A place so weird we had to pinch ourselves to make sure we weren't dreaming.
