    [post_content] => We just floated down the Beni river all the way Guanay to Rurrenabaque. We camped our on river beaches, wove baskets with a Mosoten community almost caught a few fish and had lots of campfires and amazing food. Other highlights of the trip were shooting bows and arrows, giant pancakes, wild boars, crocodile, macaw and capybara sightings. And this is just half way through the Amazon section. Today we are visiting an agro-ecological experimental station in the Amazon and eating wild chocolate. Tomorrow we will begin to work with a community to install water filters down river from here and engage in a cultural exchange celebration.

    [post_content] => The internet makes the world a strange place. When in history could a traveler write their travels for all the world to see without returning home? On one hand, we can share our feelings, raw and unreflected, allowing emotions to run in their purest form. On the other hand, the traveler has little or no time to look back on what they have experienced and refine those experiences for a version better received by the outside. On the other, other hand, it creates an audience no longer dazzled by tales of adventure, but rather, an audience expecting to be dazzled by tales of adventure. What used to be a thrilling dinner table conversation is reduced to your local news column. Like a too-popular newspaper we write on the front page what the audience wants to see, but not what we want to tell. The internet turns literary masterpiece into homework kids don´t want to read.

I am sure that by now my fellow student travelers have adequately described the past week´s trek through the Yampu circuit. To summarize, we hiked through sunny hills, to foggy peaks, over stormy passes, and finally descended into the rain forest to find that the road we had inteded to use had been ruined in a construction accident.. As such, the mules told us regrettfully that they would be unable to manage our backpacks, being built for human backs, without proper roads. Because carrying our own backpacks was out of the question, we decided the best option was to turn back toward Sorratta, the town we had left on foot seven days before, to catch a bus back to La Paz where we will catch yet another bus to Guanay and our Amazon boat trip.

I´ve been looking forward to this boat trip for a couple weeks now and can´t wait to finally get into the Amazon Basin! Though my initial spear fishing attempts proved fishless yesterday I can´t wait to try my luck spearing some crocodiles. Steve Irwin said they were dangerous, but he couldn´t even handle a stingray. Hardly a credible source.

Until next time!

Hi Dragons Family,

I´m writing from an internet café in Sorata, a charming town in the Andes where we first began our trek. This past week has been one of the most invigorating and challenging of the trip. We were pushed to hike for two days in the pourring rain and snow but satisfied to arrive at unbelievably beautiful campsites.

I want to focus on an important realization I had two nights ago. Hanna and I were in our tent, writing in our journals and enjoying our day off from being on cooking duty. I went outside for a momento to enjoy the scenery. Our campsite was snuggled into a valley. To the right, I saw the steep and rocky mountains we struggled down during the rainfall and to the left was a milky blue river, its unique color due to mineral run off from glaciers further above us. Our pack donkey were grazing close to our tents while a herd of llamas guarded their territory across the river. As I looked around and felt a slight shortness of breath due to the altitude, I realized how remote our trek and campsite were. We had spent the past five days hiking to that spot from the ¨hamlet¨ of Sorata and were at an altitude I have flown at on short plane rides! Suddenly, I started to feel panicked about how isolated I was. I realized that my experiences hiking or in the outdoors (especially having grown up in the city) have always been facilitated by my parents or camp counselors, and if not, that my parents, a warm bed and tasty dinner were just a car ride away. But, this time, we were literally in the middle of the Andes and there was no safe haven to resort to! At first, it was quite scary to realize just how independent I was up there, but then a pride and maturity rose over me when I was confident that I know how to enjoy myself and live without what is in my confort zone.

I hope all is well back home! Please excuse any typos that may have occurred from this Bolivian keyboard and Spanish autocorrect!

All the best and so much love to my family,

Ariana Mills

We just got back from an awsome seven day trek around the Illampu mountain and then down into the cloud forest. The group did great working together through sometimes dificult weather and altitude. Still on day seven every one was healthy and ready to finish up the last two days of the trek. Unfortunatly we had heard news that further down the trail there had been a landslide caused buy recent road development in the area and the slide had covered out trail making the route impassable. We called in some 4X4 to travel back to our starting point in Sorata and today we are heading back to La Paz to take the more traditional route to the Amazon basin tomorrow.

The group is in good health and getting some much needed rest after seven days of treking. We start the rivir trip tomorrow and will agian be out of coontact for the next six days until we arrive in Rurreanabaque on the 24th.

 

Abrazos desde Bolivia

    [post_content] => The last 7 days have been spent trekking through the Andean mountains. We were surrounded by some of the most incredible scenery I have ever seen for an entire week. Never have I felt so grateful not only to have the opportunity to be in Bolivia, but also to travel and enjoy other parts of the world.

I guess to explain the impact of the last week I have to at least try to explain the power of the Andean mountains, and more specifically, Mt. Illampu. Reaching 5000 meters and knowing that at any minute the altitude could be too much for me, being soaked and freezing by sleet, rain, hail, and snow, hiking for hours at a time, and waking up under the shadow of huge mountains, having our trek cut short because a landslide had made the road impassable all were reminders of my inability to control the power of nature. However, breathing in the high mountain air, feeling the rain connect the sky, myself, and the earth all together, and experiencing the grandeur of the snowcapped peaks all reminded me of the energy the earth holds. I was empowered to learn, study, and immerse myself in nautre because mother earth has so much to teach me about her gifts to the world and about myself. It allowed me to see the responsibility I have to the Pachamama (mother earth) to care for her as she has cared for me over my life.

Maya Ellis,Andes & Amazon "B" Fall 2013 Semester

Description

The last 7 days have been spent trekking through the Andean mountains. We were surrounded by some of the most incredible scenery I have ever seen for an entire week. Never have I felt so grateful not only to have the opportunity to be in Bolivia, but also to travel and enjoy other parts of […]

    [post_content] => The past week has seen my group treking through the Andes! Wow what an experience that was. WE had days of freezing cold mornings, and even had it snow on us once! The best day of the trek though was the day we really descended into the forest. We had been camped out in a rather cold valley the night before and we were lookijng forward to an eight hour walk down hill into the valley below. WE knew we would be entering cloud forest but none of us, especially not I, were expecting the change that we witnessed. It was as if we had entered another world or just stepped over a magic line that turned all the vegetation from alpine to jungle. The trees were the most significant change. Before we were only seeing grasses and moss, nothing taller than our waists. The trees added a whole new element to the landscape. Not only that, but the entire landscape became so much more lush. I can´t wait to see what the actual rain forest will look like!

    [post_content] => Traveling into the Amazon rainforest has always been a dream of mine. Descending from the Andes into the Amazon rainforest in the same day was not something my mind ever even thought of. Yesterday we did just that, and it was better than I ever could have expected. The day before, traversing our last mountain pass, and getting hit by the hardest rain we had seen all trip, failed to dampen our spirits. Waking up yesterday with all of our wet clothes took longer than most other days, but before we knew it, the grey and brown landscape around us had transformed into lush green tropics. Ever since signing up for this trip, and reading the tentative itinerary, this was the day I had been waiting for. As we walked downward, trees like I had never seen before started sprouting up, and I couldnt help but smile at the world around me. It was the first time on either one of the treks where I actually had a strong desire to keep walking once we got to our campsite. Once the tents were set up, Jake, Sandy and I decided to go fishing with the arrieros (the mule wranglers), so we set off down a path through the woods to the raging river. They had a net, and at first I was unsure if they would actually catch any. But one hour later, they had 35 wriggling tiny trout in their bag, and we ate fresh fish for dinner. It was an experience I most certainly will not forget. As we learned right before going to bed that our trek would be cut short, due to the collapse of a road ahead of us, I could not help but feel my heart sink just a bit. This was one of the coolest places I had ever been, and we had to go back early. But at the same time, sometimes you just cant do anything about certain circumstances, and we will have plenty of time in the Amazon in the coming weeks, and plenty of experienes in the next few days that I am sure we would not have had otherwise. Life is still good.

    [post_content] => Tomorrow we were supposed to be descending from the Andes into the Amazon. I was getting so excited. The lush greenery that surrounded are campsite was getting me in a pumped up mood about trekking and the fact that I would be in not just the Amazon, but also in the Andes on my birthday was too good to be true. And so it was. Yesterday we found out that we would not be able to proceed with the plan because the road was too dangerous. Now, instead of being in both the Andes and the Amazon, I will be on a bus to La Paz. It´s incredibly disappointing, but this way, I can at least eat quality birthday food, so I´m okay with it.
