Hola from Bolivia,

Well here we are, in the final destination of our trip through South America. We spent most of yesterday on the road driving from Puno to La Paz stopping along the way at some Tiawanaki ruins (pre inca). We arrived in La Paz in the late afternoon. It is a beautiful city in the valley between snow capped montains. We are still at elevation but are no longer feeling the effects (except for walking up long flights of stairs). We had our last group meal last night before saying our goodbyes. Richard left this morning at 4am to fly back to Canada while Gina and I are leaving on Tuesday.

La Paz is a very dangerous city...for shopping. Everything is so rediculously cheap that you have to hold back. Meals are so cheap too, Gina and I ate a good meal tonight that cost us $7US for both of us. One of the interesting places we visited was the witch market which sell a wide variety of dead animals such as llama fetusus, stuffed armadillos and frogs. All have some sort of folklore behind them.

Tomorrow we are supposed to go mountain biking down the world´s most dangerous road but we shall see if it happens. We made our reservations and paid the company but apperently they did not recieve our payment so they cancelled the reservation late today. I did manage to get a hold of the guy and as it stands we are supposed to go tomorrow.

Oilers win series tonight.

See you Wednesday
Gina & Andre,

As you know you will get a chance to see the Oilers
play for the Cup. The first game will either be
this Saturday or next Monday depending how quickly
the other series gets done. Carolina won last night
and leads that series 3 games to 2.

Gina, we gave Gammy the Birthday card you left with
us. Everyone thought it was a gas. She also got
another gift. It read, 'something that you lost a
long time ago and have been looking for ever since'.
It turned out to be some marbles.

It has been cool and wet lately. Bring some nice
weather back with you. We'll meet you at the airport
of Wednesday.

Sounds quite thrilling
I hope you had a chance to go mountain-biking. It is great to know you are having so much fun!
Phoenix Suns were less than stellar in last night's game.
Go, Suns! Go, Oilers!
