let it burn to the ground, cos we're not hanging round, it's the day you and i are leaving town
i've been in la paz for a little over three weeks now which to be honest is probably a bit too long, at least it's felt like too long as at least one of those weeks i've been ill in bed. there's never really a good place to feel sick, but a cold, high altitude city with good nightlife is particularly depressing. anyways, i've recovered now and tomorrow i'm leaving town to a place nearby called coroico. it's down in the yungas which is a good few kilometres lower in altitude so i'm looking forward to the increase in temperature. while i'm there i'm going to do some volunteer work at an animal refuge called la senda verde. i've been there before, when i came to la paz a few years ago, and hung out with some monkeys after doing death road. i'm planning on travelling the same way tomorrow - downhill by bicycle - and will hopefully get to know my monkey companions a little better. i've no idea what the internet situation is like down there, i'm assuming not as prevalent as it is in the city, so the photo updates may well slow down. if that's the case at least it will be in the knowledge that i'll be adding to my collection of cute monkey pictures.
