I've mostly been in front of my computer today, typing up my final notes for our first AP Government class tomorrow. So, I've only been a mental traveler...
...remembering a walk through a lunar-like landscape.
This spot on the Bolivian ecotourism circuit is a five minute walk from Scotty and Lisa's house. Last Monday afternoon, Coty and I took a stroll over rickety steps, holding onto wobbly handrails, through La Valle de la Luna (the Valley of the Moon).
It's a rather barren, eroded, carved valley. There is a cliff along one edge, just in front of the eucalyptus trees you see in the distance, that drops into a deep canyon below.
We met some German tourists at one of the overlooks and a few minutes later we looked across to another ridge and saw them motioning to us. We took their picture. They were having a good time!
Pretty incredible views! You can actually see S and L's house from here. I'm trying to imagine waking up every morning and looking out at this landscape. I don't think I'd ever get tired of it.
