camino de la muerte

la senda verde, where i was volunteering with monkeys, was sitauted at the bottom of camino de la muerte - or death road. you can get a relatively cheap bus there from la paz, but i thought it would be a lot more fun to cycle down. i had made the same journey before when i was in the area a couple of years ago - and i remember back then i was seduced by the scary idea of cycling down the worlds most dangerous road. doing it a second time made me realise that a lot of this is clever marketing - it's a cool thing to say but when it comes down to it there's not really that much danger. sure you could fall off the cliff face and tumble to your death, but then you could fall off any cliff face that you're cycling near if your not being careful. it's not as though your hurtling towards them, or navigating through really narrow paths where any slip leads to tragedy. this is not to say that i didn't enjoy it, on the contrary it's a beautiful downhill ride, it's just when you see the amount of travellers sporting a 'death road survivor' t-shirt you realise that your not special for going from a to b.
