What I know about Bolivia:

Some interesting things I've learned about Bolivia so far:

  • 3rd poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, the poorest country in South America
  • The city of El Alto, meaning "The Tall" - home to 700,000 people where 80% of them live below the poverty line.
  • Elevation: 13,300 feet
  • Delicacies include cow tongue, cow brain and cow intestine. mmmm!

On a side note, I don't know if they have ice cream in Bolivia, so I'm enjoying a nice, big bowl of "Moose Tracks" -- just in case. :)
