Just arrived in Bolivia!
It takes more than 14 hours flying to arrive to Bolivia. El Alto International Airport is located in at 4150 meters (13,615 feet) above sea level. At first moment, it is difficult to take it easy to avoid any effects of the soroche, the altitude sickness. It’s cold and misty as the car drives down to La Paz city. The disturbances in the country seem not to have reached the capital city, which still sleeps in this very early Sunday morning. After some sleep I will prepare for the visit to cacao producers in Sapecho in the Bolivian Amazon tomorrow.
