On day 5, we heard from Dan Moriarty, a lay Maryknoll who has spent more than 20 years in Bolivia. He discussed race and racism in Bolivia, including the escalation of racist attacks during the Morales administration. Unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures!
In the afternoon, we departed for Torotoro National Park, which involved many amazing adventures. Getting there was a 6 hour bus ride to cover 85 miles of intense switchbacks and some of the most amazing scenery I have ever seen.
The at-best cobble stone road was often a sheer drop, but our expert driver got us there in one piece.
Thanks to Miriam Kopp for the wonderful photos!
