Tarija RPCVs - Share a story about your Peace Corps service in Bolivia.

Here are some ideas:

When did you serve? How long were you there? What was your job? Where did you live? What's the funniest thing that happened to you while you were serving? Have you been back since you left the Peace Corps? If so, how have things changed? What did you learn from your service? What do you think you accomplished? What would you have done differently? What would you tell a prospective volunteer who is going to Bolivia?

B19 -Tupiza rural sanitation. Tarija is a wonderful small town. Advice: The flota b/t tuiza and Tarija was an ordeal and the roads (I use the term loosely) are dangerous at best. Better access to Tupiza and the Southern altoplano is via floata from La Paz or Cochabamba to Oruro and then train. The train has limited schedules and there are two. One is much nicer. Cuidado. The alto plano is an incredible territory!
