Hola GLNers! Wouldn’t it be great to get away from the D.C. summer heat? The good news is that the weather today is supposed to be milder than it has been for the past couple of days. Also, you can consider visiting the Southern Hemisphere to catch some cooler climate. For a temperate winter, check out Bolivia!
Even though most American tourists end up traveling to the neighboring countries (like Chile, Peru, Brazil or Argentina) Bolivia offers unique diversity. Aside from an ocean coast line, it has it all: blue lakes, steep mountains, hot desert, salt planes, wild jungle, big cities and remote villages. Last but not least, this would be an exciting opportunity to practice your language skills that you have acquired through GLN (whether it’s Spanish or Quechua).
Check out these pictures to get a better idea of what awaits:
La Paz is the highest capital in the world! Your plane lands in the clouds (literally!)
South of La Paz, you can journey into completely different region. It offers salt planes, colorful lagunas, rare llama species, and so much more
