You have to pay the price for the stupid things you do. I stayed in La Paz without really knowing what to do at first. I just knew I would stay till my control meeting with the doctor on Monday. It was no fun at all with my shoulders strapped up. At least it was not painful thanks to the painkillers. But I could almost do nothing by myself. I got some help from the fellow travellers in the hostel and from the people of the hostel. The first days I was walking very slowly to avoid any bump on my clavicle. Staying long days at the hostels, I managed to fix the camera and spent hours playing chess with an Hugarian guy. That was good to get me busy.

When I went to the hospital a second time. A different doctor looked at my injuries and after a new x-ray decided to remove the bandage. It was quite a relief. He said I will do pretty fine I just had to rest and I could travel. My idea was to get to a better place than tiring La Paz to recover. The only problem is that I can carry nothing so I need people who will travel with me. I waited a bit. After a few days, not really sure about the status of my clavicle, I decided to call the French embassy to get some help. They advised me to see their doctor within 3 days. I waited more and more and could finally see a third doctor. New x-ray and good news, I am still doing fine and don't need surgery. One day later, I found two Italian guy going to the lake Titicaca and decided to go with them.
