Casi en Bolivia

Hola Dragoncites.

It’s almost time to get on the plane and so we have a few last minute reminders as well as some articles to help you get a bit of a feel for the region.

Some students have asked about how warm clothes should be for treks. We can expect some temperatures around and below freezing in the high Andes so layers as well as a good quality jacket are recommended.

And the following are recent articles to help give you some context:
