A country of statistical extremes, landlocked Bolivia is the highest and most isolated country in South America. It is very rich in mineral and energy resources but Bolivia is one of South America’s poorest countries. Therefore Bolivia is often called the “Himalaya of Latin America”.
Back in January 2015 we started our exploration of Bolivia it lasted something like 6 month. In the meantime I never found time to write the full “Retro Perspective Bolivia” but I had a few drafts living around so now publishing them to share the thoughts with you. We lived in Samaipata first and then in Rurrenebaque and at the end in the big urban city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra. All 3 locations can be highly interesting depending on what you are seeking for.
