This pile of llama is going to kill me in my sleep
Day 93: Potosi, Bolivia
Lin awoke in total darkness, gasping for air. She heard Saben cough. He`s awake too, she thought. With an aching, throbbing head, Lin was just sure her head would explode and/or she would suffocate beneath the weight of 30 pounds (no joke! they were so heavy and thick we could barely lift them off!) of blankets if she went back to sleep. When daylight finally broke after an agonizing night of repeatedly waking up gasping for air, we shared our worries that we would suffocate in our sleep from being in such high altitude under a pile of llama fur blankets.
After a day of struggled breathing and climbing up and down the hill (it`s probably more appropriate to call it what is really is, a mountain!), we hopped a taxi to–the circus! Lin never having been to a proper circus (i.e. not the county fair or Wal-mart), we went all out and even dared to eat some various carny foods. We began with a course of candied apples followed by homemade (who`s home, I never want to find out) potato chips and finished off with the worst hot dogs ever! The circus far exceeded our expectations and was complete with crossdressing, midgets, dancing girls in tiny clothes, and a car running over a man. We had a blast!! Video to come soon.
