Around the Andes
This is a border between Chile and Bolivia in 6000 meters. Air was quite thin. We saw a group of Norwegian tourists in the border queue fainting from altitude sickness. They recovered after having some coca tea. It's a good medicine for altitude sickness, but unfortunately not a drug. It had no effect on us.
Finally see how we travelled our last leg in Bolivia. The bus was sold to us as having sleeping seats (Bus Cama). The reality was opposite. We could hardly fit to sit there. So we made and distributed a flier for collecting donations for the bus company to buy a real bus cama.
