I am hoping you make it to the Salt Hotel in the Salar de Uyuni., Bolivia.
Don't miss flying in a small plane over the Nazca Lines, Peru.
Climb to the top of Machu Picchu.
Buy a souvenir in Otavalo, Ecuador.
Visit Chacaltaya, the highest ski 'resort' in the world. (Over 17,000 feet)
Open your purse strings and stay 1 night in the only hotel in the actual park of Iguazu Falls.

Details on any if you want.....

Will you be visiting Buenos Aires?

I ask because a buddy of mine, a world traveler, surprised me recently by saying he's heading down there soon, almost on a whim.

I recently read an article about this. Apparently it's gone and not coming back:

https://www.snow-forecast.com/whiteroom/chacaltaya-bolivia-worlds-highest-ski-resort/

They claim climate change but Jim Inhofe says it's just fine; people just need to adjust to skiing on dirt.

What's the line on Grinder actually making posts every 3 days? I'm guessing at least one 10 day break between posts.

(Just kidding! I appreciate all the effort and time you spend on the reports and yes, I actually LEARN things from them. Thanks for your efforts!)

Have a great, safe, trip PG! I am looking forward to following your adventures. By "we" do you mean your sister is coming along too? I enjoyed her perspectives on the Asia trip. I'm really curious how the hostels there compare to those in other areas.

Any plans to drop in on Venezuela? Heh... Maybe you can give them a dollar and bring back a couple billion Bolivars?

Don't do it, not for a minute. It's really really bad there right now. You would be targeted so fast...(shudder).
