This will likely be the last one for this journey.  Fun place to visit, but good conditioning plays a part in adjusting quickly to the altitude. Once we had acquired all of the local gadgets to stock our suitcases with, we loaded on a bus and headed back to La Paz to the airport.  We did not have to work around a “blockade” this time, so the trip was smoother and a bit quicker.  If I did not mention before, there are no designated bus stops.  You stand and wait for the ride to come along.  Same goes for when you want off.  You just tell the driver.  He stopped to let these two ladies off out in the middle of nowhere.  We could not see any place for them to go, go they did.  We did run through a hail storm that left a major amount of hail on the road.  There was an inch to an inch and a half of hail on the road.  The image was taken through the windshield, so it may be hard to see.  Plus  the driver didn’t use the right side wiper. His side looked like it should have been changed about four seasons ago.  It was good to get back down to an altitude where we could breathe.  Even at 8400 feet.  Along with all of the traffic.  Just enough time to settle a bit before we pack to return to the states. I’m considering making calendars for next year with some of the images. I’ve been “altering” some Photoshop and other programs. Please leave a note if you would like to see the results.
