“Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother,
You're stayin alive, stayin alive.
Feel the city breakin and everybody shakin,
And were stayin alive, stayin alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin alive, stayin alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin alive.
Somebody help me, yeah.
Life goin nowhere.somebody help me, yeah.
I'm stayin alive.”
ATVing in the countryside
Aodhan goes through a small stream. Aodhan drove the ATVs very fast.

I had forgotten just how blue the sky around La Paz is. I guess it is because we are so high up in the mountains. La Paz ranges from 3200 metres to 4100 metres.
Aodhan looking at the Valle de la Luna
You can see why they call it the Valley of the Moon
Each of these peaks and points has a name - maybe I should of written some of them down? The tall narrow one was called "The Viscacha Jump" Viscachas or vizcachas are rodents of two genera (Lagidium and Lagostomus) in the family Chinchillidae. They are closely related to chinchillas, and look similar to rabbits, apart from their longer tails.
The pathway was narrow and did not have rails in many places - like this part that is about two feet
wide and drops into a deep abyss. Some parts of the path were crumbling away and workers were
replacing the path with straw and clay.
Aodhan loves this merry-go-round at Oberland
My delicious $2.50 CAD salad at overland, covered with quinoa.
I sometimes forget how cheap things are here, even in this nice hotel.
Aodhan's favorite is the tomato soup at Oberland. Please note the delicious garlic bread they brought to the table with a bowl of fresh spicy salsa
