Bolivia Part 1 - July 21 - 27 - Dispatch #4

Guide: Alasdair Turner

Climbers: Walter, Stacy & Reis Meanwell (Wisconsin), Robert French (Arizona), Gabrielle Zartman (Arizona), Dennis Boyle (Pennsylvania), Neil Rosenberg (Illinois)

Alasdair called at 2:00pm July 26th with the following dispatch: We are back in La Paz. It seems like this flu bug has finally run its course with everyone. I do think we are all grateful to be back in town though. Today was just a little bit of a trek to reach the bus stop at Plaza de LLamas. We came out a little early so the group could recover a little more and then we will all head in near Condoriri for a final trekking day together.

There are huge storm clouds sitting over Illimani and the cordillera. Worse than I've every seen. So, we are watching and hoping that they clear up before we head in there. Bolivia typically has excellent weather so we are not anticipating that this storm will stay for long.
