What I did
Eduardo Avaroa National Reserve
Our party consisted of Jaime, Sara, Christopher, Lina and us, and then five others in a second jeep (four Israeli students and a Swedish girl) with the second driver, Ramon. The four day/three night tour was to be an incredible experience, made great by our driver and fabulous food (including veggie for me that made everyone else want to turn veg). Enjoy the pictures - they don't do the view justice so you'll just have to come to Bolivia yourself!
Highlights were: Out-of-this-World landscape, cross country 4x4 driving, llamas, baby llamas, toilet naturale (multiple times!), thunder and lightning, picnics, 4600 metres above sea-level (!), the weird experience of altitude sickness resolved by much coca leaf chewing and “basic” accommodation (i.e. no shower and lots of blankets).
Its all worth it though!
PS: Thanks Lina & Christopher for the extra pictures!
