Senior Trip, part 1- La Paz

From La Paz to Uyuni to Sucre, Debbie Miranda and I took 20 Seniors and a male chaperone all over Bolivia for their Senior Trip.  We started on Sunday morning, April 7th by flying to La Paz.  Some of us chose to get acclimated slowly while others chose to go rappelling off the side of our hotel.  Don’t worry – those kids had parental permission, and we checked out the company’s equipment before any of our kids got near the ledge.Image

  In La Paz, we also toured where the Senate and Congress meet and got a breath-taking view of the city: Image 

As we finished our time in La Paz, some chose to go paint-balling 🙂  Others of us went to the zoo and the Valle de la Luna.  While the paint-ballers had fun, they didn’t have anything like the natural beauty that we got!  The Andean Condor is Bolivia’s national bird – the Andes make a perfect backdrop, don’t you think?Image

 And in the Valle de la Luna (Valley of the Moon) we were serenaded with typical music from an atypical musician.  He played and danced and sang on the edge of the rock face.  It was amazing.Image

More to come as we move on to Uyuni (Part 2)
