As an Australian, traveling anywhere outside of the country is going to be cheap or at least cheaper than the great southern land. Chile was no exception, but after 3 weeks of hearing non stop talk of how expensive Chile and southern South America was from fellow travellers I was intrigued to head north to see what all this chit chat was about. It turns out that most folks had at one point in their travels explored the great landlocked nation of Bolivia. And after arriving just a week ago holy shit is it cheap. Today I got a delicious eat in meal for a mere 80 cents! Back home that wouldn’t even get me a tin of home brand beans. I am well known for being somewhat stingy with my dollars, so here in Bolivia I feel I have found my new home. The people are alright too.
Anyway to get here I ventured from the chilean dessert through the salt flats and took a few delightful snaps with my trusty iPod.
