What I ate for a week: La Paz, Bolivia edition

    0
New series! This isn't meant to be a health diary as much as it is a peek into what's available in the countries where I live and how my eating habits change in each country. Let me know if you like it or if it's boring.I've written before about how I gave up health when I joined RY. I miss health food terribly - local greens...

The Spectacular Southwest…of Bolivia!

    0
One of the few facts I knew about Bolivia before visiting, besides the fact that it sits at an insanely high altitude, is that it is home to the largest salt flats in the world, Salar de Uyuni, which are about 4,000 square miles. A visit to the salt flats was one of the few side trips I knew I had to take this year...

The hardest way, on purpose.

I love my job.I'm not saying that the way that many do, claiming they love a career because they've devoted time and energy into it and need to convince themselves it's worth it.I legitimately love what I do, why I do it, and who I do it with.I'm also a driven personality. My fatal flaw in work is that I am prone to burnout because...

Cholitas Wrestling!

The slogan: Cholitas Wrestling: “Only in La Paz do you get to see the local ladies dishing out more punishment than your local bouncers on a Saturday night!”  I can’t even explain how happy this event made me.  It was pure joy.  Best $15 USD I‘ve ever spent.  (Sorry, Patrick. We WILL go back!) The ladies are fierce!  The pageantry was pure beauty.  And, I love how...

On monotony

Seven of us opted to fly to Cusco.Remote Year organized a 14-hour bus ride from La Paz for us. 14 hours? On a bus? How much are flights again?So we ate the extra $160 cost, took a one-hour flight, and spent the day exploring while everyone else was fighting the urge to stretch their legs.Worth it. 10/10 would spend extra to fly again.I noticed something...

It's either cause there's too much going on, cause the pictures are too awesome or cause I'm lazy....this post will be all pictures from Patagonia. Sure, I could tell you about arriving in Patagonia and having the cab driver blasting Celine Dion in the car, but you didn't come here for that. I could reminisce about the dance party we had at the top of...

Introduction Why Bother? As should be abundantly clear from my prior writings I am about to leave on a trip for a year. During that time I’ll likely be making use of numerous public Wi-Fi access points, not to mention whatever dodgy cellular providers are available in each location I travel to. As part of my overall stance on privacy, its essential I take steps...

his past Sunday 5/1/16 we moved to La Paz, Bolivia. After four weeks living in Buenos Aires I survived, minus 1 iPhone 6S and Rhino Shield case, but with a new iPhone 6S and funky black mesh case.tl;dr - don't text in cabs.(I was in the back of a cab and the window was open just enough that a motochoto ran up on foot, stuck his...

Landing in La Paz, Bolivia

    0
Sunday night, we landed in La Paz, the highest capital city in the world: ~12,000 to ~13,500 feet above the sea.  The altitude is no joke, and many Remotes were immediately sick.  Thankfully, I’ve avoided any alto affliction BUT, Tuesday, I fell prey to the stomach sickness.   They tell you not to drink the water here; beware of street food; don’t eat the fruits, because...
