Bolivia on air!

It is Thursday, 5:55pm and our expedition begins - we embark a flight to Milan in Vienna airport. After couple of cans of slovak beer bought at a gas station en route to the airport, we handle the check in easily being able to avoid any extra charges for our overweight baggage.

First small victory achieved and ahead of us 34 hours of travelling including 3 transfers. In Milan, we change for a flight to buenos Aires and our expedition doctor Michal encourages us to couple shots of "anestheatics" that should help us to cope with this 14 hours flight.

The anestheatics worked out well and so we get out in Buenos somewhat stiff but happy and are looking for the austrian part of the group flying in from Munich and Madrid. We finally meet them, their lime/green soft shell jackets from TREK SPORT could not be overseen.

After the flight to Santa Cruz, we change again to flight to La Paz, where we hapilly land. A big miracle happens and all of our expedition gear arrives on time with us.

La Paz literarly takes our breath away with its 4100 m of altitude at landing point:-) The head is somewhat dizzy and below us is the bowl of lights of the city stretching in a crater like valley in altitude from 3500 to 4100m.

And again, the well known srythm of the city, the disorganized traffic, the honking of cars and latino rythms... and hard-earned sleep at a worn out matress...

Keep your fingers crossed for us, the adventure has begun!
