Steve Gibson’s Trip to Bolivia

Steve Gibson’s Trip to – March 12-24 After a trip to Tupiza with a United Methodist Building team I was unable to fly to Cochabamba due to a cancelled flight due to weather from Sucre. So I got the last seat on the midnight bus. This is a 10 hour ride over an unpaved road. My seat was in the back so it was not too pleasant, especially not being able to see out. Mauricio picked me up at the terminal and I found out we were on our way to the campo. We worked for 3 days at the school in Llallaguani.
