Just a quick update to let you know we are alive and well in La Paz, Bolivia. The posts have been few because of the lack of a decent internet connection. Sam’s been laid up in bed for two days with a tummy bug. If the problem persists we’ll go and see a doctor but she seems to be on the mend. We are staying at the best hostel in Bolivia while she recovers, it just so happens to be an Irish establishment called Wild Rover.
Tomorrow I’m heading off with a few other guys for a 74k bike ride on the world’s most dangerous road. I’ve been assured that we will be in good hands. In saying that, some English dude went flying of the edge to his death last week. A true test of ones biking skills I would say. I just couldn’t leave La Paz without doing this activity. Hopefully I’ll have an update with loads of photos for you in a day or so.
Here’s a BBC article on the road and some youtube videos. After looking at these, I’m glad I’ll be on a bike and not on a bus.
