Ep. 77 Bolivia

Mark relates a story to Ben Staley and Trevor Thompson about a trip to Bolivia in 1996. Of course, there is climbing talk but the more interesting aspects of the journey had little to do with that — especially reviewed 23 years later. The trip started with some thievery and a high altitude night marathon, and concluded with a city-wide party in La Paz, psychedelics, meeting a local metal band, poverty and celebration, a fashion show at the hotel featuring Alpacas, fabric made from their wool, runway models and a too-quick return to North America. A companion article and gallery are posted on the NonProphet website.
