"To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower; Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour." William Blake

The Bolivian Welcome Party

September 12th, 2009 by sunflowers

There are some days that are perfect. I headed out from Puno to La Paz along Lake Titicaca feeling pretty lucky that I was able to do this trip. Watching the women working in the fields along side the lake, watching the mountains in the distance.

When I first started planning this trip I was going to buy a bike off a guy who was riding from the US down until his father emailed me to say that he had a head on with a truck in Bolivia and was pretty broken up but alive. Then someone emailed me a blog of someone doing this trip and they had just had an accident in Bolivia and broke their leg.

As I am a bit of a weekend long distance rider I wasn’t really looking forward to the rough roads of Bolivia so between that and my sister being here I am going to leave my motorbike in La Paz and travel on bus for a while. So the motorbikers that I emailed about storing my bike in La Paz rode out to meet me just after the Bolivian border and I had my own personal escort into Bolivia. With a delicious trout meal along the way. Thanks to Alfonso and Oscar for organising!
