You had the choice of renting a donkey to hold our backpack and sleeping bag at the danger of looking like full pussy. So strapped up, logging a backpack and sleeping bag, feeling pretty appalling we started the first few steps together of a 5 day journey, the top being Machu Picchu. The third largest country in South America, Peru is ranked in the prime 20 of the world’s largest nations. I had a love/hate relationship with the hostel.
On one hand every thing was so undemanding and the people were cool however it was riddled with heavy drug taking. The cocaine in Bolivia is a number of the most cost-effective and purest in the world so some people come and spend the whole time absorbed in it.
Looking around seeing a number of the folks there I suspected so much have been addicted to drugs and thus the jail acted as haven for them to feed their habits. We obtained proven to the main character of the book Thomas’s room the place he lived for thus many years and a number of the inmates talked about him to our guide. We have been additionally shown some viewpoints of the town in La Paz from the jail. I was too absorbed in the jail to replicate on our information, however at this level he dropped his guard.
We made our way via whole wilderness, I got a second wind 7 hours in but the altitude had taken its toll and by the tip had ran out of all energy. We slept in tents in a shelter that evening, it was fairly entertaining as a small piglet was also staying within the shelter, I very boisterous pig. Throughout the evening I could hear it grunting, I woke in the morning to search out it shivering within the corner, so cute. There was a relatively huge group of us crammed with a gang of ex army Israeli’s carrying skilled tools, a Dutch couple, Croatians, Germans, Colombians, Argentineans and Brazilians.
He was talking to us about his daughters with a misty look in his eyes, they seemed his escape and refuge from throughout him. It was sad to assume that I’d depart and he would nonetheless be here locked up tonight taking a look at this view.
I bear in mind being abruptly woken up one morning, it should have been 9am, I appeared round to see what had awoken me and with no attempt to conceal things, there was a bald Western man snorting a line of coke. No one was confrontational or hostile to us within the time we have been there, a couple of people shouted issues like ‘gringo’s’ but that was it. In the sea of Bolivians there was actually some foreigners there which took me unexpectedly. One a South African guy was rooting through a bin as we noticed him, he appeared bewildered and barely gave us a second look, he was just consumed in his own world.
