From Perù to Bolivia
5 June 2018 | By Marieke |
We follow Bertrand, from Perù to Bolivia.
“I’m back on the road by bike, the sun is shining, at least at the beginning of the day as it’s still the rainy season.
The road will take me to Uyuni in Bolivia.
The first day is peaceful. The road is quite flat. I’m smiling and I have a good stride, I’m cycling along the Rio Vilcanota for a few days.
I will go through a little village, Oropesa, the capital city of the bread. Only 300m along but there is an incredible amount of bakeries along the way. They all sell the same bread.
One of the main activities around here is the culture of eucalyptus trees.
I get to cycle one last time in the hail at 4400m high in Perù and will then cycle in the direction of the Lake Titicaca that marks the border between Perù and Bolivia.
The Lake Titicaca is the largest lake in South America (in terms of volumes of water) and the highest navigable lake in the world.
After cycling for 2430km in Perù, I’ll finally reach Bolivia !”
