I blame the Bolivian Tuna

Tuesday, 16 Oct 2007 | Views [1090]

Sunday, 7 Oct 2007 | Views [12969]

Breakfast, then   anaconda hunting.   Translation: three hours of wandering thru the pampas (read grass and swamp) in “wellies” looking for a snake.    Heather, part of the    hard drinking couple from England (they’d both have a beer around 10am) ... Read more >

I’ve made it to Bolivia. It only required I: a) Get a cab from my hotel... Stupidly, I thought my hotel might call me a cab  (silly me, where would I ever get this idea) With my broken Spanish the guy behind the desk was aware that a ¨taxi¨ was ... Read more >
