Thoughts on South America (Bolivia and Peru in particular)


By smithdm3 - Posted on 15 May 2007

Just some random thoughts from my South American trip.

  • I apparently can adapt to putting used toilet paper in the garbage instead of flushing.... weird.
  • Elevation is an interesting thing to cope with.
  • People in Bolivia are extremely nice.
  • I could get used to having an 'emplayada' - a maid that cleans your house, does laundry, does your groceries and cooks all your meals.
  • Living in a developing nation is different then in a developed one, but you can find things that take you home for a short while.
  • South American beer is good, and at least in Bolivia and Peru, fairly cheap. I drank Huari, Cusquena and Cristal.
  • I like vegetables, especially crunchy ones, which are hard to find in Bolivia and Peru.
  • Cabs in La Paz are crazy!
  • Panhandlers in Peru can be very pushy and rude. Some old lady hit me when I didn't give her any money.

I may add more as I think of them.


Crunchy Vegetables...I would KILL for a CARROT! Sounds like a fabulous trip!

I also have to agree with this:
" Living in a developing nation is different then in a developed one, but you can find things that take you home for a short while. "

I find my 'moments' here of both terribly missing and wonderful reminder. They both make me happy in retrospect.

Miss ya!
