We are saying goodbye to Bolivia, for now.
But we’ll be back pretty soon! We’re coming back to southern Bolivia after a month in Chile. We’ve got an exciting adventure ahead of us, from now until we get back to Ecuador in March.
Tonight we have a 3 am flight to Lima, an 11 hour layover there, and then we are heading to a place that both of us, separately, have dreamed of visiting for a long time – Patagonia!
We will hike for 10 days in Torres Del Paine national park.
How are we preparing ourselves?
For one thing, I spent two days cooking an elaborate meal for our Airbnb hosts, consisting of lentil burgers, vegan brioche buns made from scratch, baked herb potato fries with homemade ketchup, and banana neapolitan nice cream.
It was super delicious. Click here for the Vegan Corner’s vegan burger playlist, where I got these exquisite recipes.
We also got Aaron’s laptop repaired. Turns out, it was crashing because two months of living in dusty places in Ecuador and Peru really gunked it up inside, and the system’s safety mechanism was shutting it down before it overheated. We are heading to Chile with functioning technology and a potentially rapid Internet connection. The blog was waiting for this – too bad we’re voluntarily sequestering ourselves in the backcountry for two weeks.
Tonight we pack and we might go for a hike in a canyon here in La Paz, then a delicious final meal at a gourmet vegan restaurant called the Red Monkey, and maybe we’ll go to the movies to kill time before our flight. We’re also going to a grocery store and purchasing a whole lot of dried, instant food for our hike.
See you next week in Patagonia!
