Road trip to the highest ski slope in the world

BOLIVIA | Wednesday, 14 Nov 2007 | Views [758]

Just as being in a city that is at an altitude of 3500 m is not enough, we decided that a trip to Chacaltaya (which is 5300m just at the parking lot) would be fun. I had recuperated enough with my bout of food poisoning to go along on the trip, but ... Read more >
