La Paz

March 18th, 2017

Maybe the most strenuous part of our journey till now were the three days of travel from Puerto Maldonado in Peru to La Paz in Bolivia. Since there were no direct flights from Puerto Maldonado or Cusco to La Paz, and the options with a stop in Lima were just too expensive, we had decided[…]
