We made it!
So we´re here in Bolivia. Yea! It was a good trip here but a very long day. We flew from Chicago to Miami then onto La Paz. We had about a 10 hour lay-over in La Paz which has a very high altitude of about 12,000 feet. It was definitely hard to breathe up there. I would move my arm up or stand up and get very light headed and have to take a few extra breaths. It was pretty strange. Then it was onto Cochabamba which is the city where we are living. We were surprised by the beauty and lushesness of the city. It is more beautiful than we expected. I guess the green in the city will be short lived as rainy season is ending soon and with that everything turns to brown. We´ll just enjoy it for now then.
