Leaving Guanay

We are leaving Guanay, after a very necessary 2 resting days. We will be traveling by boat down the Rio Beni towards Asunción del Quiquibey, today and tomorrow. Arriving on Thursday afternoon we will begin a short homestay in Quiquibey. We will be traveling back on the 28th towards Rurrenebaque, a larger amazonian town. We will have reception in Rurrenebaque, but will only spend one day there recovering and gathering our energy for our long travels back towards Cochamabamba. On the 29th we fly towards La Paz and take a bus from there to complete the second part of our long homestays in Tiquipaya. Students should be able to contact families when in Rurrenebaque or La Paz. After that communication will begin more regularly during the homestay period. Thanks and wish us good travels!
