Alasdair called at 2:15pm Pacific Time on August 10th with the following dispatch:
We didn't make it back to La Paz tonight. No, it's not another sickness or disaster. This place is just so amazingly beautiful that we decided to stay another night. We are staying in a hotel on the side of a cliff looking out over the coca fields. We are trying to make up for a the other misfortune we've had to deal with this trip by lounging by the pool. Tomorrow we'll head back to La Paz to finish up the trip.
