hey guys. it´s us. We´re currently on a goose chase for coca and llipta in Caroico (sp?) and adjusting to typing on a Bolivian keyboard. Feeling like dumb American tourists currently. Hopefully by the end of the trip we will feel like confident, competent, less dumb American tourists. Although our Spanish is a little bit out of practice, everyone is being so kind and understanding when we ask them questions that are phrased in a probably confusing way.
Today has been a full and exciting day! This morning we woke up with some yoga taught by Jeff (GO JEFF!) then went on a hike to the top of the peak near our hostel that had one of the most incredible views. A lot of us, however, felt unprepared for the trek ahead, as this hike was only about 15 minutes long and we were pretty out of breath. Itza taught us some survival Spanish for our adventure in the town which has been very helpful! They outlined some goals for the trip and we did some very fun and informative group exercises. One thing they suggested was to get lost often and we are already satisfying that goal in Caroico.
Vamos a encontrar coca si es la ultima cosa hacemos!!!!!
